We talk a good game here about eating locally and seasonally, but we do have a few exceptions: mangoes and avocados. We just can't break these two habits. We've searched high and low for mango and avocado trees in the Northeast, just to ease the guilt a little, but so far, no luck.
If you can't redeem yourself, indulge. Here's the perfect gadget to indulge your mango guilt: Oxo's new Mango Splitter. It takes the guessing-game out of seeding and slicing a mango. No more sticky fingers; no more wasted sweet meat.
And as far as avocados go, no gadget necessary: we prefer to just open them up and eat them with a spoon.
