How to Peel and Cube a Mango
Cubed pieces of mango make a great addition to everything from chutney to fruit salad. And cutting up a mango couldn’t be easier. You can cube a mango in two ways, in fact. This method involves peeling and then cubing the mango:
Peel the skin off the mango.
You can use a vegetable peeler instead of a paring knife.
Peeled mangoes are very slippery, so be very careful with the knife! Keep paper towels nearby to dry your hands as you work.
Use a chef’s knife to cut the mango in half.
Slice along each flat side of the large pit.
Place the mango pieces on a cutting board and slice them in parallel strips.
You can add mango strips to a fruit plate, if you like.
Cut the mango slices at a 90-degree angle to create cubes.
Use these mango cubes in chutney or as a starting point for mango fondue, for example.
You can also cube a mango without peeling it. Check it out!
