George, Please be very careful with cutting into the pits and the flesh of the mango. Using a knife as a blind person can be very very dangerous if you aren't careful so please watch what your really doing when cutting please.

> The way I prepare my mango is to stand it on end, with the skinnier pit edge towards me.  Then I cut it from the north pole to the south pole just to the right of center.  I then turn it 180 degrees and do the same thing for the other side.  This cuts off the two cheeks leaving a finger width band of flesh around the skinny edge of the pit.

> I now have all the flesh off the pit, and the skin is attached to the flesh.
> 
> For the band of flesh I lie that on the cutting board, skin side down.  Hole the end of the skin with my left (non-dominant) hand, and cut away from me running the blade of the knife along on the inside of the skin, and under the flesh.
> For the 2 cheeks, I cut a grid of score marks through the flesh towards the skin.  Maybe 4 cuts east to west, and 3 cuts north to south. I then either use a spoon and scoop the flesh off the skin, or turn the skin inside out so that the flesh pops up and the skin is concave.  I can then easily cut off the cubes of flesh.
