Cooking Tips, Part 2: Cutting an Avocado

Hey, I'm back with another tip for you!

Cutting an avocado can be tricky, but if you can get this method down, it's really simple.

I learned this from my sister's boyfriend's mom, who, by the way, is one of the sweetest women I've ever met.

So, you start with your sharp knife and your avocado. Cut length-wise all the way around the pit, then twist the two halves to separate them, like this:

Being very careful, strike the pit hard with the knife. Don't carve into it - strike it.
Grip the avocado firmly and twist the knife so the pit comes out.
Cut the avocado into quarters and just peel the skin off. This is a zillion times easier than trying to cut the avocado while it's still in its skin.
Hope this helped!
