A "New" Way to Peel a Mango!!!

Posted by

You never know when you will learn something new.  And here at Martha Stewart Living Radio we, like Martha, love learning something new every single day.  The other day was no different when I was strolling through the streets of Soho in New York City.  I love the food and crafts that street vendors offer and I encountered someone selling delicious, fresh sliced mangos.  I was so intrigued by the way she peeled the mango for sale.

A Fresh Way to Peel a Mango

I love Mangos but absolutely dislike peeling them since they can be slippery and messy.  Lo and behold.  The street vendor had pierced the fruit with a screwdriver (reserved only for this use of course) then used a potato peeler to simply slice the peel off the fruit.  This method, I soon learned, resulted in a neat clean process and very little fruit was wasted.  What a discovery!!!


I want to share this technique with you in case you weren't aware of how to peel a mango this way.  Now, I will definitely look forward to purchasing, peeling, and enjoying Mangos more than ever!

  • This looks too complicated.Don't peel the mango.Just cut down the mango along the flat side of the stone on both sides. Now you are left with 2 halves in the skin.set the mangos on the cutting surface,flesh side up.Take a sharp knife and score the flesh while still in the skin vertically and horizontally and scoop out the mango flesh with a spoon.I don't waste the flesh aound the stone if there is any. This is the least messy method I have found.Try it I think you'll like it.
