ABC of Mangos in Supporting Immune Function

ABC of Mangos in Supporting Immune Function!

Do you know that mangos contain over 20 different vitamins and minerals, helping to make them a superfood? Some nutrients in mango may help support your body’s immune system.

Add Mangos to Your Diet to Help Support a Healthy Immune System

In addition to their amazing fruity flavor, mangos contain several key nutrients which may help your body’s natural immune system to work properly. These include important micronutrients such as Vitamin A, Vitamin B6 and Vitamin C. Just one 3/4 cup serving of tasty mango provides 8% of your daily Vitamin A, 8% of your daily vitamin B6, and 50% of your daily vitamin C!

Three Essential Micronutrients in Mango – A, B6, C

Vitamin A, Vitamin B6 and Vitamin C are essential micronutrients. This means that your bodies cannot manufacture them and therefore they have to be included in the food and drink you consume. You should be able to get all the vitamin A, Vitamin B6 and Vitamin C you need by eating a varied and balanced diet.

Adding mango to your daily regimen, whether in meals, in drinks (such as smoothies) or as healthy snacks, helps to get your required amount of these three key nutrients which help support a strong immune system.

Ingredients

Crust

  • 2 cups cake and pastry flour (soft flour)
  • ½ cup butter
  • ⅓ cup sugar
  • Butter or coconut oil for greasing the pan

Filling

  • 4 peaches (3 cups pitted and cut into pieces)
  • 24 Red Sun Farms Sweetpops tomatoes
  • ½ cup yellow sugar
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp sea salt
  • 2 tbsp all-purpose flour

Crumble

  • ½ cup yellow sugar
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup butter
  • ½ cup raw pecans
  • 1/8 tsp ground cinnamon

Instructions

To make the crust

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°
  2. Put the flour, butter and sugar in a food processor and process it until it starts to bind together a bit.
  3. Grease and 8” x 8” square pan with butter or coconut oil. Cut a piece of parchment paper to fit the bottom of the pan.
  4. Put the crust mixture in the pan. Spread it out evenly and press it down into a solid mass.
  5. Put it in the oven and bake for 30 minutes.

To make the filling

  1. While the crust is cooking, cut the peaches in half and remove the pits. Cut all the peaches into small one-inch pieces.  Put into a medium-sized bowl.
  2. Cut the Sweetpops in half and add them to the bowl.
  3. Mix the yellow sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, sea salt and flour together in another bowl. Add to the peaches and tomatoes.  Mix by hand with a spoon, fork or spatchula.

To make the crumble

  1. Put all the ingredients for the crumble in a food processor. Process until the crumble starts to slightly bind together.
  2. Once the crust is baked, put the filling on top of the crust and sprinkle the crumble on top.
  3. Put back in the oven and bake for 30-35 minutes or until the crumble is baked and slightly golden.
  4. Remove from the oven and let cool. Go around the edge of the square pan with a flat knife.  Lift a little to make sure it is not stuck to the bottom of the pan.  Place a large plate on the top of the pan and flip it over to have the square fall out of the pan and onto the plate.  Remove the pan.  Remove the parchment paper if it’s stuck to the square.  Place another plate on top and flip the square so that it is right-side up.
  5. Cut into 12 pieces and serve.
  6. If not serving right away, place in an airtight container.

Deliver Refreshing Fruit Tarts This Spring!

Fruit tarts are the perfect, healthy menu addition for springtime. Wawona Frozen Foods is proud to offer the highest quality fresh frozen fruit products, including plums, strawberries, mixed fruit, peaches, pears, and more, all perfect for fruit tarts. Here’s why you should add these tarts to your menu.

According to the CDC, only one in ten US adults consume enough fruits and veggies. Fruits are packed with nutrients and fiber; considering Americans consume an average of 14 grams of the recommended 20-38 grams of fiber per day, this is yet another reason to encourage fruit consumption.

That said, who doesn’t love dessert? Fruit tarts are sweet and flavorful while still being packed with healthy fruit. These tarts include various fruits, depending on the recipe. Recipes for fruit tarts call for fruits such as plums, apples, cranberries, pears, blood orange, lemon, and more

While many fruit tarts are sweet, others are a bit more bitter, such as those with blood orange or lemon. It doesn’t matter who you are; there’s a fruit tart out there with your name on it! That’s one of many reasons why these desserts make a fabulous addition to any menu.

If you’re missing some fruit for your tarts, let Wawona Frozen Foods help. We offer the highest quality fresh frozen fruit to retail stores, foodservice, schools, and industrial customers. Located in California’s San Joaquin Valley, we’d love to help you meet your fruity needs. Learn more today!
