Is this supposed to be 4 green mangoes or 40?
user Charmaine Castro charmingtreasures013 - Jan 3, 2011
Hey Leah,
Its suppose to be 40 - with the seed shell or without it. But you can estimate it - my family recipes are like that...hahaha - I little of this & a little of that but I would play around with the pieces of the mangoes because it is placed in a mayonnaise jar & tossed around & dried in the oven. But its pretty close to it - I hope this helps. Much Mahalo's
