How to cut an avocado like a pro

Almost nothing in the world is as delicious and nutritious as a fresh ripe avocado but neatly cutting one is a task that takes a little bit of technique. These steps should help:

  1. First cut the circumference of the avocado from top to bottom all the way to the pit.
  2. Gently twist the avocado to separate the two halves; the pit should separate into one of the halves.
  3. Hold the half with the pit firmly in your non-dominant hand, and using a heavy knife, carefully strike the pit with a single firm blow. The knife should stick in the pit and with a twist and pull you should be able to easily remove it.
  4. Now you can simply peel the two avocado halves and use as directed.

Slice and separate; remove the pit; two perfect halves.
