How to open Avocados

Thursday, February 24th, 2011

To open an avocado you must first begin by cutting around the fruit length wise and twisting the two halves to separate. To remove the seed, take a knife and whack it sharply against the seed, twist slightly. The seed will separate from the flesh and you will be able to easily remove it. Be careful taking the seed off of the knife, it can be slippery. You have two options, you can either peel the skin from the flesh, or cut the flesh into slices or cubes and scoop out using a spoon.
