m The easiest way to peel a mango is to use a sharp vegetable peeler to remove the skin, then use a knife to cut the flesh away from the large, oblong pit. Once peeled, stand the mango on the wide end and cut the sides away, then trim the top and bottom.

m Even easier, kitchen gadget maker OXO has a mango splitter, which looks like apple cutter and corer. It works best if you peel the mango first, then use the gadget to cut the flesh away from the pit.

m If you buy more mangoes than you can eat, or simply want to enjoy them all year long, peel and pit them, then place the flesh in zip-close freezer bags. The bags will keep in the freezer for up to three months.
