Our CSA delivered a few mangos this week, and I had fun showing the boys the drama of eating a mango.
First, cut the fruit into thirds. The center section will contain the pit and can be eaten messily over the sink. The two side pieces can be made extraordinarily presentable.
Cut a cross hatch pattern.
And then flip it inside out! The boys were thrilled to see the transformation. Maybe the whole world knows about this trick, but I love seeing it every time, especially because it brings back fond memories of eating mangos like this at my grandmother’s house.
Q-ster mastered sliding each bite-sized piece off with a fork, but I helped Buster separate the pieces. Yum. No pictures of the consumption part, because we were all too sticky to operate the camera.
