hedgehog
 n.— «More talented culinary types know that you don’t need any special equipment to cut a ripe mango other than a sharp knife and a bit of determination. That’s especially true if you use what’s known as the “hedgehog” method. First, cut large slices, or “cheeks,” off the mango. Then, cut criss-cross slices into the mango flesh, being careful not to cut through the skin, and push the cubes off the skin by inverting the slices.» —“Keep mamboing with mangoes” by Gretchen McKay Pittsburgh Post-Gazette (Pennsylvania) Aug. 23, 2007.
