she torched a mango

we’ve had a kitchen torch for many years. i think we might have used it once, but i’m not positive. in a perfect world, crème brûlée would be on the dessert menu rather often, but it’s not, unfortunately.

and then last month the mangoes started pouring in, along with a recipe for mango brûlée. it was a win-win. we got to dust off the kitchen torch (because who doesn’t get a kick out of using a kitchen torch?) and now we have yet another way to work our way through piles of mangoes.

i was tempted to let the boys help me. it’s quite a simple recipe: slice mango, sprinkle sugar, torch the sugar, squeeze a lime, done. but the idea of a certain 4 year old handling a kitchen torch gave me pause.
