I have actually eaten a mango every day since I learned this trick. I even tried an Ataulfo mango, which tasted pretty similar but...they were on sale. I know mangos aren't exactly the picture of local eating during winter in Canada...but...I love them. And, like I said, they were on sale...poor students can't be too picky.
Anyways, I still I wish I had known How to Peel a Mango a little earlier in life...
Score the top of the mango with a knife.
Peel slowly and see how easy it is!
Peeling a mango is a joy when it is well-ripened...and quite a struggle when you're too impatient to wait for it to ripen.
So, depending on the ripeness of your mango, the skins might come off in just a few large pieces, or a bunch of little ones. Once the peeling is done, you can just eat it off the pit.
Anyways, if anyone didn't know this little tidbit of information, I hope I have gotten to you before you spend 22 years eating irregular shaped mango slices. While thinking about mangos, I started, of course, Googling them. Here's a site full of interesting information...including different ways to eat them (I had no idea people sprinkled salt on them):
And finally, it only seems appropriate to have the nutritional information...
