YEAH mamey is in season but?
So I bought 2 good size fruit a few days a go at the local hispanic super market(Vallarta supermarket). They were $2.99/lb and it cost me about $8 bucks, is this the usually going price for them? Today I cut one up to try my first ever mamey sapote, but it was hard as a rock( well technically more like a sweet potato). It was orange inside but the flesh was just firm, crunchy and had almost no flavor except a hint of sweetness and a cinnamon/nutmeg aroma. I didn't like the raw flavor so I fry them up in a little oil like sweet potato fries. They turned up pretty good compare to when they were raw, tasted just like sweet potato in flavor and looks. I still have the larger of the two left, am I supposed to let it set out for a couple of weeks till it is soft like a ripe avocado? If the flavor doesn't intensify by then, I don't think I will waste anymore money buying this fruit.
