How to Carve a Mango Flower on a Stick

Watch this Puerto Peñasco, Mexico beach vendor cut up a mango and mount it on a stick, making it super easy to eat. As soon as he peels the skin off, he slices a spiral of fruit petals, and then sprinkles it with lime juice, salt, and chili pepper.

With some practice, this seems very doable at home. Get a wooden chopstick or a BBQ skewer, and after the ripe mango is carefully cut, enjoy the traditional Mexican style above, try it plain or with cinnamon, or if it’s a hot day, freeze it before you eat it!
