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!
|1. Slice through the mango to one side of the seed.|
|2. Repeat for other side.|
|3. Cut a cross hatch pattern into each side of the mango, making sure not to cut the skin.|
|4. Flip each half inside out. The flesh will be easy to scoop out at this point.|
|5. Make a cut on either side of the stem.|
|6. Pull skin around seed off.|
