Kitchen Note: A mango has a large, thin, oblong pit which can be confusing to remove. Do not peel first. If you do not have a mango pitter, first cut off the two sides of the fruit from the pit. Remove the fruit from the peel by making a checkerboard pattern in the flesh with a sharp knife. Turn the peel and flesh inside out, then cut the fruit off the peel into chunks.
Skills: chopping, combining, tasting for balance
