My buddy Dave gave me his stash of fresh fruit and vegetables before heading home for the holidays. I had been avoiding cutting the mango for a few days, but in trying to eat healthier, decided to cut it up. But how does one cut a mango, I wondered. Those of you from East Asian or South Asian families may have your methods…
I found some nicely photographed instructions at Simply Recipes (though they coincidentally did not include any photos of the messy cleaning off of the seed).
What’s more amusing is reading the comments – each country seems to have its own way of doing it. I wonder if there’s some food scientist out there trying to creating a seedless mango??
How do you cut up mangoes? Or do you go for the easier method and just buy the frozen mango cube chunks from Trader Joe’s?
