With summer on the horizon, we can’t wait for all of the delicious seasonal fruit that’s soon to be in abundance! We particularly love mangos – their sweet, slightly tangy taste and velvety texture is just irresistible. However, mangos can be a little tricky to prepare, so today we’re sharing our tips on preparing mango. You’ll need this one in our Smokey Adobe Chicken Tacos coming in your box next week! 

If you want to slice your mango into batons to use in a slaw or eat as a snack, simply follow the steps below:

1. Hold the mango with one hand and stand it upright so it is stem-side (fat-side) down.

2. Using a sharp knife, cut down one side of the mango around the pit – you can’t really see the pit, but you’ll feel the knife struggle if you hit it. Repeat on the other side of the pit. What’s left is mostly pit which you can discard.

3. Slice the mango pieces in half and peel the skin off the mango. Then cut crosswise into 2-3 inch long pieces.

4. Slice the pieces lengthwise into 1/8 inch batons.

If you’re looking to dice your mango to mix into a salsa, salad, or a cocktail just follow the steps below get the perfect cubes:

1. Hold the mango with one hand and stand it upright so it is stem-side (fat-side) down.

2. Using a sharp knife, cut down one side of the mango around the pit – you can’t really see the pit, but you’ll feel the knife struggle if you hit it. Repeat on the other side of the pit. What’s left is mostly pit which you can discard.

3. With the knife, make crosswise and lengthwise cuts through the flesh of the mango – similar to how you would dice an avocado.

4. Now, either use your hands to turn the skin ‘inside-out’ by pushing up on the skin. This will separate the mango cubes from the skin.

Happy Cooking!
