Steps to Cut an Avocado
Here are some simple steps to cut an avocado perfectly.
Cut it in 2 halves
Avocados don’t grow in pairs, but if you’re going to buy them, buy two at a time. Then cut them in half, one incision down to the sea. And then, rotate the avocado, the knife will not change its position. Next, just simply spin, and there is our avocado seed. A nice firm goes in about 1/4 of an inch. Twist quickly. This will remove your seed.
Peeling off the avocado
Put the knife down on the table and use your hands to peel it off. Hold the avocado with your left hand and use your right hand’s thumb and index finger to peel it.
Dice an avocado
Place the avocado on the chopping board. Use the fingers of your left hand as a guide, and the knife in your right hand just comes straight across. Nicely slice the avocados. The pieces of the avocado will stick to your knife. Don’t let that bother you.
Avocados are very soft, so you can cut these small pieces in your hand. Remember, the trick to cutting avocado is don’t move it around on your board because that’s where it turns into liquid.
Scooping an avocado
If you want to remove the entire half of the avocado, let’s say you want to dice it or do some sort of fancy presentation with it. All you need to do is take a spoon, scoop down at the end, and press it against the bottom, and there’s your avocado.
You don’t have to have these perfect pieces of avocado because it’s creamy and soft. You can use a spoon. And if you’re tossing these in a salad, the easiest way that I know how to slice an avocado would be scooping it out with a spoon.
