My eight year old has loved mangos since she was one- eating the cut fruit with a poke stick (toothpick in grown up parlance). I still pack a cubed mango in her lunch box at least once a week.
But how to cut one and achieve maximum fruit with minimum transfer from the bitter skin or fruit waste to the large fibrous pit? My friend Mary, who is Philipino, showed me how.
Sounds pretty easy, and it is! With regular mango eating you will be able to cut up a mango in under two minutes.
Eat it as is, add to salsa or make a smoothie. Mangos- nothing to be scared of, wonderdully delicious fruit beneath the bitter exterior.
