Tips for the kitchen

Fresh-produce how-tos:

Zesting citrus. Citrus zest adds almost calorie-free brightness to everything from salad dressings to cakes to main dishes. Use a microplane for best results, and stop when you get to the bitter white pith.

How to break down a butternut squash. Cut off both ends and scoop the seeds out of the opening in the wide end with a spoon.

Wearing an apron, hold the squash against your chest and remove the skin with a peeler, working toward you.

Cut the squash where the body becomes bulbous; halve each section lengthwise and dice.

Cutting a mango. To safely cut a mango, cut off the top and bottom so the fruit can stand. Cut skin with a paring knife, then cut off strips around the large pit.
