tip: Peeling a fresh mango
a sharp paring knife, cut the mango in half lengthwise, circling the flat seed,
and gently twist the halves apart. Cradle one half of the mango in your hand,
and using the paring knife, carefully score the flesh of the mango in one-inch
diamonds (think of drawing a tick-tack-toe game). Cut along the base of the
diamonds, next to the mango's skin.
