AHH THE BELOVED mango. It is one of my favourite fruits. I love them while they are in season and when they are not in season I enjoy frozen mangos by the bowlful. It only occurred to me recently that a lot of people cut their mangoes into slices, but truthfully, they are best in cubes. How to achieve this, you ask? Let me walk you through it...
Step 1: Admire whole mango in all it's glory.
Step 2: Cut mango into thirds. Holding it lengthwise, cut the mango about 1/4" from the center line (or from the little stem) avoiding the pit if you can, repeat on the other side. You should be left with three pieces, two halves and the centre piece with the pit.
Step 3: Cut horizontal slices across the mango without cutting through the skin on the opposite side. Cut vertical slices across those to create cubes. Invert mango slices so your mango looks like a hedgehog.
Step 4: Carefully cut the cubes off of the inverted mango skin. Peel the skin off of the center piece and cut any remaining bits mango off the pit.
Step 5: Feed your mango lovin' bubba. "Mennnnnngoh"
