Morsels of Life - How to Cut a Mango - Find out how to cut a mango easily using this simple slicing method.

Don't know how to cut a mango? No worries - after reading this post, you'll know at least one way to neatly cut a mango without getting yourself completely sticky with juice. If you've got a really ripe and tasty mango, there's no real way around it, as soon as you make the first cut, some juice will come out. (Try to avoid licking your hands until you're finished cutting!) The general idea is to cut around the large, flat seed in the middle of the fruit. I like to cut as close as possible to the seed so I can get as much of the flesh as possible. Of course, this method is just the method I prefer. If you've got another method, feel free to share in the comments!

  2. Yum! I loved eating mango when I lived in Hawaii... have you heard of or tried the cup method of peeling it? That's a fun party trick. Thanks for posting this on the #sustainablesunday link up!

  4. I always think it is such a waste to cut the mango. There should be a mango corer like the apple corer. I tried that one time. Not large enough for the mango seed. Thanks for sharing at What'd You Do This Weekend.

    Wishes for tasty dishes,
    Linda

    1. I've seen a mango slicer where you just push down recently! Although to be honest, I'm not sure how well it would work. Using this method, you really don't waste much flesh at all. :)

  6. Hi,
    I didn't know there was a way to cut it. My daughters eat it more than I do.
    Thank you for bringing your post to Blogger's Pit Stop last week.
