it’s Food Friday here on YQtravelling. Instead of meals, I’m sharing a how-to video with you.
I had the chance to eat several mangosteens while I was in Johor. I thought it would be interesting to show you how to peel a mangosteen.
Guide to peeling a mangosteen
The fruitseller told me to pick the fruits that had a softer exterior. A mangosteen’s flesh is covered by an armor of fiber which is coated by a dark purple skin.
Take a mangosteen, press on the fruit so the skin breaks.
Then, carefully break off the shell so your fruit doesn’t fall out.
Enjoy the while flesh and be careful of its seed.
