Eating a mango is like taking a mini vacation in your mouth—all of a sudden, you’re transported somewhere sunny and warm, even if you’re not. But as tasty as they are, they can be a little tricky to cut up. Luckily, this instructional video demonstrates how to cut off big, clean slices from a mango around its flat, oval pit (yes, mangoes have pits).
The video’s a bit shaky, so if you’re prone to vertigo, consider yourself warned. Also, enjoy the credits.
Once the mango is cut, if you want to cube it, you can score it in a box pattern and push the cubes of the skin by inverting your slices. That part isn’t shown in the video, but this photo tutorial covers it well.
