How to Cut a Mango
A variety of mangoes are in season right now. Mangoes are a sweet, tart and juicy fruit that range in size and shape. Its inedible peel is orange when ripe, with orange fruit inside and a large seed. But how do you cut into this delicious fruit?
- First, cut a small piece off of the base so the mango doesn't move around your cutting board.
- The seed inside is long and flat, so about a half an inch from the center, cut away the flesh from the seed.
- Use a small knife to make slices (or a checkerboard pattern) in the flesh but not all the way through the skin.
- Use a spoon to remove the flesh from the skin.
