Step-by-step guide: how to cube a mango the hedgehog way
1. Use a sharp knife to slice the mango in half vertically, leaving two ‘cheeks’.
2. One cheek at a time, score the mango flesh three or four times horizontally; then three or four times vertically to create a checkerboard effect.
3. ‘Pop’ the mango out to create a hedgehog, and then gently slice off the pre-made cubes.
4. Why not use your newfound skill in the recipe below?
