Welcome back to One-Ingredient Wonders! Today I am going to show you how to turn your mango into a delicious round Rubik’s Cube.
Today’s Spotlight: Mango Fleurette
This is a trick my mum learned from her mum from the Philippines. My grandmother told me the story of how a mango tree branch grew in through the window of her bedroom and she could pick her breakfast from her bed.
To make this monstrously good mango specialty I have come up with four easy steps:
You start off by cutting the mango into three separate pieces. When doing this do not cut the middle “bone”. It is not edible. Choose one of the two sides and draw a grid with your knife, but don’t cut any of the skin. Finally, pop the grid-mango inside out by pushing the skin up from the bottom.
Occasionally when I eat this I eat it with a knife and fork, but when I am hungry (I usually am) I eat it with my hands, picking it up from the bottom, and biting off the cubes.
Thanks for reading! Please follow and comment, and I will see you next post!
This is my grandmother’s house from when she was little in the Philippines.
