If you’ve never cut a mango, why would you know how to, right? How would you know that there is a large pit in the middle, or what its shape is? That’s why I thought I’d give you some help. I remember the first time I was shown. Thanks T!
The mango seed is long and flat.
Now then, this is how to cut a mango:
- To start, hold the mango on a cutting board, stem down. You want to cut just next to the widest part of the mango, maybe ¼ inch off-center. Do the same on the other side of the seed to cut off the other “cheek”.
- With each cheek skin-side down, slice length-wise with parallel cuts – careful not to cut through the skin. Turn and cut perpendicular slices.
- If you push the mango skin inside out, the mango cubes are splayed out and you can pop them off the skin with your thumb, knife, or spoon.
