Step 2 - Stand Mango Upright
Step 3 - Remove Mango "Cheeks"
The fullest, fleshiest sides of the mango are called the “cheeks.” Starting from the top of the mango, cut down the mango, angling slightly around the pit, to remove the cheeks. It helps to understand the basic shape of the pit so you can most easily cut around it. The pit is oblong and flat, somewhat like a disc. If your knife hits friction while cutting you have likely run into the pit. Redirect your knife so that it cuts around the pit.
Step 7 - Scoop Out Flesh
Once the flesh has been inverted, it should be easy to pull or scoop out the mango chunks with your fingers or with the side of a spoon. If the flesh doesn’t easily pull away from the skin, use a paring knife to carefully cut it away.
Step 8 - Remove Flesh From Sides
Step 9 - Cut Away Remaining Flesh From Pit
