Tips & Notes

  • Tip: Cutting a Mango:
  • 1. Slice both ends off the mango, revealing the long, slender seed inside. Set the fruit upright on a work surface and remove the skin with a sharp knife.
  • 2. With the seed perpendicular to you, slice the fruit from both sides of the seed, yielding two large pieces.
  • 3. Turn the seed parallel to you and slice the two smaller pieces of fruit from each side.
  • 4. Cut the fruit into the desired shape.
