Mangoes and kiwifruit are rich in vitamin C and fiber, and they can be added to salads or make a great healthy snack.
But do you sometimes refrain from enjoying them because you know you can’t peel them without ending up with a mess?
You’ve probably tried to cut the peel with a knife and watch the mango slip out of your hands and land on the kitchen floor. Or you’ve been trying to spoon out the flesh of the kiwifruit but you ended up with small pieces instead of the fruit half.
Fortunately, there is a better, easier way. And all you need is a kitchen knife and a small glass. Simply follow these three steps.
- Step 1: Cut the mango or kiwi in half, lengthwise.
- Step 2: Place the bottom of one half on the edge of the glass, with the peel on the outer side of the glass.
- Step 3: Hold the glass in place with one hand and apply pressure to the top of the mango or kiwi with the other hand. Watch the peel slip off in a smooth and elegant way.
No more sticky hands or mess on the kitchen counter!
Note that it will work better if your piece of fruit is fully ripe and the flesh of the fruit doesn’t stick to the peel.
With this simple, convenient method you’ll be able to peel mango, kiwifruit and avocados. You can now add them to your salads, or make a salsa to go with grilled chicken, or enjoy a delicious guacamole.
Watch the video to see how you can elegantly peel these fruits.
