Eating a mango is a messy affair
March 28, 2017 7:10pm CST
When a mango is given to you with no knife around to cut it, how will you eat it? Just bite off the skin making a tiny hole at the top and then gently suck the mango to your heart's content. Any other way would mean juice trickling down your hands and even messing your clothes. There are several ways a mango can be eaten. Pare off the skin and slice the mango into pieces. When I have guests I do it a bit differently. I use a melon baller scoop out the balls and place them back in the skin of the mango. A bit of whipped cream spread over it makes it an exotic dessert. Have you eaten a mango when there was no knife around?

I would bit off the skin to peel it like you do but that's for unripe mango. I didn't know that you can actually suck the ripe mango from the top and I can't seem to imagine how to do it right. When you said using a melon baller scoop, does that mean the picture above is the actual result of it? It really looks unique and delicious but I hope to see a version of when you had that whipped cream spread over.

That is my work and yes larger the mango easier it is to use the melon baller. You can imagine what it will taste like if you put some whipped cream on top (lol) I can never eat an unripe mango as it will sour. To suck a ripe mango just bite off a tiny bit and make a hole and suck it all up.

I had written a blog on how to eat a mango but I cannot find it any where. First and foremost you must remove a small portion where the stem is. Then slice off the two cheeks. You will be left with the stone with some portion of the mango on either side. Slice those off. Don't throw away the stone. It has flesh too. Best is to have a bib round your neck, just bite off and make a tiny hole and suck it all up.
