    New to mangoes? Here’s some advice:
    At the market:
    Choose mangoes by touch and smell.
    Select full, somewhat firm fruit with smooth skin. They should have a strong, perfume-like smell.
    Storage at home:
    Mangoes that are too firm will ripen if left on the countertop. Mangoes should be eaten as soon as they are ripe. Ripe mangoes can be refrigerated for 1-2 days.

    Preparation:

    Mango skin is not edible. Mangoes have pits, which cannot be removed like peaches or avocados. Cut the flesh from around the pit. Here’s how: Hold the mango with the stem end up on a cutting board. Slice one of the fat sides of the mango off with sharp knife starting about 1⁄2 inch from the center of the stem. Do the same to the other side. If you feel resistance, you have hit the pit. Just move the knife a little farther over to the side. You can get a little more flesh off by slicing the sides of the pit (but not too much, the pit is large). then remove the skin from the mango. It can be sliced off easily with a sharp knife or a vegetable peeler.

    3 ripe strawberries (fresh or frozen)
