Kiwi: Slice n’ Go
I’ve seen people do some weird stuff with kiwis. How can something so little be so complicated? If you eat them whole or squeeze them out like this guy, maybe you just need a gentle nudge in the right direction.
All you have to do is cut your kiwi in half and enjoy it with a spoon. Not too hard, after all. But if you want to get fancy, here are three more ways to cut a kiwi and an awesome kiwi pineapple margarita you should mix up.
Mango: Slice n’ Dice
Mangoes can get pretty sloppy if you don’t know what you’re doing. They’re pretty complex fruit to master, but with these easy instructions you’ll become a bigshot mango-slicin’ wizard. Free of charge.
First, place the mango on its long side. Carefully cut it into three pieces, leaving the seed in tact in the center. Be careful not to make the middle piece too thin or wide—you’re trying to cut as much off as possible without hitting the seed in the center.
Next, take the two side pieces and cut into them in a grid shape.
Press on the bottom of the slice to invert the rounded mango slice and voila! A tasty mango for you to enjoy. And yes, you’re going to have to dive right in with your face, so watch out for the juicy goodness. (Pro tip: with your new skills, try this coconut sticky rice with mango)
Pineapple: Slice n’ Slice n’ Slice … n’ Slice
First, grab the pineapple leaves and firmly twist them off. Remove the top and bottom sections.
Vertically cut off the sides of the pineapple, leaving only the middle. If there are “eyes” still in the middle section, either remove them individually or cut them out in diagonals.
Cut into vertical fourths.
Remove the core from each spear by cutting a v-shape out of each inner-most piece.
Slice up the rest and serve.
