Mango Salsa

Mango Salsa

  Okay, I need to be perfectly clear here. Before I made this mango salsa, I HATED the concept of a fruity salsa. Just the thought of fruit being mixed with peppers made my stomach cringe and my eyes roll in disgust. I originally made this mango salsa to please my husband. He always went on about how much he loved it and how he wished I wasn’t so weird about it. So I forced myself to make this recipe. The whole time that I was preparing it, I kept thinking about how crazy people are to enjoy such random foods mixed together. And then I tried it. Words cannot describe the tastiness of this salsa. I can’t explain it because I still can’t believe that I liked it. I liked it so much that I ate 1/4 of the container of it before letting my husband know that it existed.

How to Grow Peppers

Name: Peppers Description: **There are so many delicious types of peppers! I am a spicy lover, so I am eager to grow them all.   **Green bell peppers are simply the bell peppers that are picked early. If you leave them on the plant longer, they turn red, turn sweet, and become even more nutritious.   **For more information on that focuses on the needs of the different varieties of peppers, check out this other post of mine on peppers.   Position: **Give peppers a very sunny spot that they can occupy all season long and where peppers have not grown recently.   **Growing them in raised beds, which has warmer soil, will hasten the ripening.   **Peppers like a sandy, fertile loam soil. However, do not give this plant too much nitrogen because then the plant produces more leaves and less fruit. Some extra phosphorus is beneficial, and the plant will suffer if the soil is too low in calcium or magnesium. It prefers a soil with the...
