Mangoes add a citrusy, floral flavor to sweet and savory dishes. However, breaking down a mango can be tricky. Once peeled, the slippery fruit can escape your hand (or the cutting surface entirely), resulting in a sticky mess and some near-misses with a sharp knife.
If you don’t want to purchase a mango splitter (this one from OXO is the test kitchen’s time-tested favorite), we have a simple technique for mess-free mango peeling that will make them easier to prep (and eat). All you need is a spoon.
