  • knife


  • 1 ripe but still firm, mango


  • Use your knife to cut through the flesh, about 1cm (or half a finger-width) away from the center of the fruit to give you one ‘cheek’
  • Repeat on the other side of the mango
  • Then repeat with the other side. You should end up with three pieces: two halves, and a middle section that includes the pit.
  • Take a mango half and use a knife to make lengthwise and crosswise cuts in it, but try not to cut through the peel. Invert the mango half so that the cut segments are sticking out like a hedgehog.
  • Slice the flesh into thin wedges, or dice for smaller pieces.
  • Serve and enjoy your mango immediately.
