Good-quality Mangoes will yield slightly to gentle pressure when ripe. The coloring will be deep red and/or rich yellow with only a blush of green at the most. If you’re in a hurry, you can ripen a mango in a sealed plastic bag with ripe bananas on top of the refrigerator.
Here is an easy way to cut up a mango. The pit of the mango goes the entire length and width of the fruit, and it is very skinny. With the peel on, make two cuts, dividing the mango into thirds. You will have the right third, the middle third that has the seed, and the left third. Cut the majority of the meat away from the pit, by sliding the knife right along the flat side of the seed. Toss the seed. Then score the cut side of the pulp with a knife in a criss-cross pattern, being careful not to cut all the way through the skin. Now simply push the fruit from the skin, turning the fruit inside out.
Revered not only for their exotic sweetness and for juicy quality, mangoes are known for their many health blessings. They contain an enzyme similar to papain in papayas, a soothing digestive aid. Mango’s proteolysis enzymes break down proteins, and are effective meat tenderizers. Mangos from India are used as blood builders. Because of their high iron content, and are often suggested for treatment of anemia.
