How to Cut an Avocado

Cutting an avocado is really easy (and kinda fun, too!) - just follow these simple tips...

1. Cut the avocado lengthwise, cutting around the pit (the big seed) in the middle, and twist

2. CAREFULLY smack the pit with a heavy knife (please don't hold the avocado in your hand while doing this b/c the seed is very slippery)

3. With the knife "stuck" in the pit, twist it clockwise and the seed should slide right out of the avocado, still stuck to the knife...

4. Carefully knock the seed off the knife (I use the side of the cutting board)

5.  If there are a few small brown spots, no worries, simply cut them out

6. Now you have two halves and you can take a spoon to scoop out the meat
