Alton Brown Teaches Humans How to Peel a Mango


Last month Alton Brown proved America was making grilled cheese sandwiches all wrong. Now, he's back in a gory edition of "How to Slice a Mango".

Warning: don't watch this if paper cuts make you queasy.


Amidst the chopped fingers and rabid weasel puppets, Brown demonstrates the safest way to peel and cut a slippery mango. All you need is a marker and a peeler to create what's essentially "mango handles" and a sharp knife to slice it into bite-sized chunks.

However, while his recommended method is indeed the most Kitchen Safety 101-appropriate, I still prefer the crisscross pattern, aka "Bad Example #1". So be it.
