autumn four fruits oneAre people planning on making this recipe as is?
I haven't seen mangoes for weeks, and I can't bring myself to spend $8 on a punnet of blueberries. I would have thought these fruits were more summer rather than autumn.
Would love to know if anyone has any alternate plans for breakfast next Friday.

Re: autumn four fruits oneWe can still get mangoes up here in Qld, and you can always pick out the blueberries from your frozen berries, they'll still taste the same.
I guess you could try substituting the mango for another fruit, something that you really like, it's not your fault that you can't get them. *S*

Re: autumn four fruits oneMangoes have got really dear here (Melbourne) just had lots of really sweet honey ones in Singapore last week which I will miss. Bought tinned mangoes today for the first time ever - mainly in juice but some sugar added - will be interested to see what they are like. I buy frozen bluberries - always $9-10 per kg so much cheaper than fresh and often better quality

Re: autumn four fruits oneThe frozen blueberries are heaps cheaper. Lat week Woolies had them half price- less than $5 for 450 grams. I ended up getting blueberries, 3 berry mix and raspberries, so that should keep me going for quite a while. I haven't seen mangoes for a couple of weeks either. I think Franklins may have the frozen berries on special this week, but a smaller pack, still better value than fresh ones though. :)
