This is how you prepare the fruit for the salad / smoothie / sorbet....

Using a sharp knife cut the fruit length wise.

Insert a spoon between the skin and the flesh of the fruit and run it along the cut half.

Remove the flesh and keep aside.Scoop out the remaining flesh if its sticking to the skin

Check if the skin is sticking onto the flesh and remove it.Cube the flesh and use as desired
