Before I tell you how I cut my mango I want you to know that I started blogging my recipes so that I could have them written down with photos for my daughters. Back when I started blogging I didn't even know that others would come to my blog and enjoy them, too! So thank you for being here and I hope that you have found some tasty new recipes to try.

I was inspired to do this post because my 15 year old had no clue how to cut a mango. I also know that my older daughter is getting married and she does look at my blog for recipes. So this is to help them and hopefully help you!

Easy Way To Cut a Mango

1- Lay the mango down on the cutting board and cut a large section off the side. I usually cut about 1/4 of an inch from the bottom or top end. As I slice into it I let me knife flow around the seed. You can't cut the seed.

2- Do the same with the other side.

3. Put the flesh part right side up and cut 1 inch strips across mango and turn and do it again. I then take my knife and cut close to the skin to remove the pieces. This is how I get the chunks.

4. I then stand up the mango and cut off the side flesh around the seed. Do this for both sides and then remove the flesh and cut into chunks.

5. If there is flesh left on the seed, eat it off! The kids like this part, too.
