Here's The Easiest Way To Cut A Mango

Delish logo Delish 6 days ago Lena Abraham

Mangos fall into the same category as pomegranates and pineapples: delicious to eat, annoying to cut. But they're deceivingly difficult. With this simple guide, you’ll have no problem gettin’ into the good stuff.

1. Find the stem.

Each mango has a long flat seed in the center-once you know how to steer clear of it, the rest is easy. The best way to do this is to position the stem so it's on top, then slice off the sides of the mango (you'll want to leave some border to fully avoid the seed).

2. Cut a grid.

If you’ve ever cubed an avocado, this step will be familiar: Using a paring knife, cut a grid pattern on each mango half, being sure not to cut through the skin. Press the underside of the half so that the inside of the fruit is pushed out into individual cubes. Here's The Easiest Way To Cut A Mango © Parker Feierbach Here's The Easiest Way To Cut A Mango

3. Scoop it out.

Use a spoon or paring knife to scoop the fruit from the mango skin. Here's The Easiest Way To Cut A Mango © Parker Feierbach Here's The Easiest Way To Cut A Mango

4. Remove the rest.

All the fruit around the seed can't go to waste. Using a paring knife, slice or dice the scraps. a knife sitting on top of a wooden cutting board: Here's The Easiest Way To Cut A Mango © Parker Feierbach Here's The Easiest Way To Cut A Mango
