Want to know how to hedgehog your Calypso® Mango?

June 12, 2020

 

The 'hedgehog' is the best way to create cubes of Calypso® Mango, ready for you to use in your favourite recipe or eat fresh – yum!

  1. Stand your Calypso® Mango on its “beak” end, with the stem facing you. The flat edges of the seed run in line with the widest part of the mango, with a cheek either side.
  2. Position your knife just to the side of the stem and cut straight down from top to bottom. Your knife will skim past the seed.
  3. Cut a criss-cross pattern in the flesh of the cheek, being careful not to cut through the skin.
  4. Holding the cheek with the criss-cross pattern up, gently push the skin upwards, as if you were turning the cheek inside out.
  5. Your “hedgehog” is now ready… to remove the cubes from the skin, gently slide your knife under each cube to slide them off.

 


 

 

Calypso® Mangoes are unique! A firm, fibre-free flesh with a small seed, so there’s loads of juicy flavour to serve in your salads, purees, chutneys and sauces.
