How to cut an avocado correctly

With this simple educational you’ll be in a position to cut an avocado, remove the seed or even the pores and skin in just a few steps:

  1. Choose your knife. Use a small paring knife – no need for a huge butcher knife.
  2. Start vertically. Cut your avocado vertically all the way round. You’ll feel the knife hit the seed as you move round.
  3. Turn & cut vertically once more. Once you’ve cut it in half, flip your avocado the different way (retaining it vertical) to cut it in part again all the way round.
  4. Twist & pull. Twist the avocado round the seed and pull it apart.
  5. Twist yet again. Twist again and also you’ll have four equal pieces!
  6. Remove the seed safely. Grip the seed along with your fingers (or use a spoon) and pull it off. Don’t use a knife.
  7. Remove the pores and skin. Peel off the skin from each 1/Four piece, and mash or cube then again you favor.

How to store avocados

  1. Store it entire. If you haven’t cut into your avocado yet, feel free to retailer it at room temperature to let it ripen. If you’re discovering that it's ripening too quickly before you want to use it, simply store it in the refrigerator.
  2. Store it cut. If you’ve cut into your avocado, store halves or cubes/slices of fresh avocado in airtight packing containers, bags, or with beeswax food wraps for up to 2-Three days in the fridge. Feel unfastened to squeeze a bit of lemon juice to your avocado to save you browning.
