Mango: Main Image

Preparation, Uses, & Tips

Mangos are perfect eaten raw, but they should always be peeled, as the skin is very acidic. After peeling, use a sharp knife to cut the flesh away from the large, flat, oval-shaped stone in the center. Eat as-is, or top with yogurt or mix into breakfast cereal. Pieces can be frozen, made into juice, marmalade, compote, or puréed into sauces. Chutney is prepared from unripe, green mangos. Dried mangos are also available in the dried-fruit section of many markets.
