The store had a lot of samples displayed; in the produce section we tried pineapple, mango, and oranges. I realized that I had never purchased a mango, so I put a couple in my bag. I wasn't sure how to serve the fruit, so I did some research, and learned how to cut and serve a mango.
I used the "How to Cut a Mango" page on the Simply Recipes Website for my research. The process looked pretty easy:
- Stand the mango on its end, stem side down. Cut from the top of the mango down one side of the oblong pit, then repeat with the other side.
- Take a mango half and use a knife to make lengthwise and crosswise cuts in it, without cutting through the peel.
- Take the fruit off the peel with your fingers, or by using a small paring knife to cut the the pieces off.
- Get the flesh off the middle section with the pit, then peel it.
