Since having two surgeries on my hand all because of a mango, I am rather hesitant to cut one…but I do miss all the great things that you can make with them.
So I have learned that the best way to dive into a mango is definitely not with a wine glass…but instead to first cut long 1/4″ vertical slices 1/4 inch away from the middle to separate the flesh from the pit and then to cut the flesh into a grid-like pattern and scoop it out of the rind.
As far as use, mango contains more sugar than many other fruits…so you probably should limit how much mango you eat in a day to two cups per day.
But some of the many delicious ways that you can easily include mangos in your diet include….
- ice cream
- rice dishes
In the next few posts, let’s take a look at some of these ideas for using this rather “dangerous” but delicious fruit.
