Okay my JAP Ohana, this is a wonderful family recipe that was created from my aunt who is now 76 years old. I made this local snack many times over - love it if I only can find green mangoes. If you can find green mangoes - you have to try it - & again you will find this snack in many Hawaii stores - its just expensive tho just for a couple of ounces its priced at $3.99 or more. Why buy when you can make it yourself.....look out for more fam recipes!
