A Brilliant Hack for Peeling Mango

Inspired by conversations on the Food52 Hotline, we're sharing tips and tricks that make navigating all of our kitchens easier and more fun.

Today: Don't fight with your mango -- or waste any of its fruit. Instead, Katie Quinn shows us an easy, foolproof way to peel a mango.

We already know that mango is delicious -- whether in pickle, salad, drink, frozen, or naked form. Peeling them, on the other hand, is not as universally loved. Luckily, there's a trick that's as easy breezy as the islands where these sunny fruits are grown. As video journalist and food enthusiast KatieQ shows us, all you need is a knife and a cup. You'll be eating a lot more mango just to show off this party trick.

Tell us, how do you like to eat mango?
