How to Cut an Avocado
How to cut an avocado (and not cut yourself!)- showing you how to protect your hand while cutting an avocado.
Protecting your hand with a thick tea towel, cup the avocado firmly, and work a paring knife around the outside of the avocado until you have cut it in half.
Twist gently until the avocado separates into two halves.
Hold the side of the avocado with the pit firmly in your tea towel-protected hand.
With a sharp chef's knife, firmly hit the avocado pit with the knife, so it goes into the pit. Twist and remove the pit.
Still protecting your hand with the tea towel, slice strips into the avocado without cutting through the skin.
Scoop out the avocado with a spoon, and enjoy.
Alternatively, you can peel the avocado and slice it on a cutting board.
