In celebration of my purchase of the summer's first mango.
You will need:
1 small, sharp knife
1 damp cloth for cleanup
Using the kife, slit the skin of the mango from top to bottom, all the way around, then again at right-angles. This should leave the skin in quarters.
Peel the skin off in quarters. You will now be holding a whole, naked mango in your hands.
Holding mango in both hands, bring it up to your face. Open mouth wide, and devour mango.
After sucking the last of the flesh off the stone, daintily clean hands and face with damp cloth. Dispose of mango remnant in environmentally-friendly manner.
True story: Until i was fourteen I honestly thought this was how everyone ate mangoes. I couldn't figure out how they got those neat little cubes.
