Mangoes-how to remove from pit

I decided to get a mango the other day and started slicing it. I learned from a previous experience how slippery they are when peeled; so I decided to try slicing first and then peeling. The thing is I still ended up with what seemed like a lot of fruit still attached to the pit. And if you try to grab that to shave more off-well good luck. I wondered if there is a special tool or something for dealing with mangoes. Any ideas?

  • I have not idea. You may have to suffer the loss in fruit like I do. Here's a bump though.

  • I cut as much as possible from the pit, skin still on, and someone will just eat the rest straight off the pit. Pampered Chef makes a thing for them but I'm not terribly fond of it, I can get more off using a good sharp knife.

  • Go to YouTube. I learned how to cut up a pineapple on there yesterday.
