most direct way to enjoy a mango is to peel it and eat it like a
peach, nibbling off every last bit of flesh connected to the pit.
Beware, this method is messy because they are so juicy. So, you'll
need plenty of napkins to sop up the juice that will run down your
chin. (or better yet, a water hose to wash off with!)
I know two other methods that I'll share with you. The first one is my favorite. This brings back memories of a day that I picked up some hitchhikers out in the Puna District on the Big Island of Hawaii. We picked a couple of bags of mangos from trees by the side of the road, then went to a local water spigot so we were prepared to wash up after gorging ourselves on luscious, ripe mangos!!
