How to prepare an avocado

How to Prepare Avocados:

As with any fruit, wash before using in cool running water. Cut your avocado lengthwise around the pit and gently twist both halves in opposite directions to separate them (like you are opening a jar that is a little stuck). Take the side that has the pit and carefully hit the knife into the pit, so that it “sticks”. Twist the knife and lift out the pit. Alternatively, scoop out the pit with a spoon. With a large spoon scoop out the flesh from the skin. Discard the skin.

As soon as the avocado is cut and exposed to air, it will start to oxidize [darken] however the taste won’t be affected. If you’re only using half an avocado, do not remove the pit from the one side sprinkle lemon juice and salt on the exposed flesh to prevent browning and store tightly wrapped in plastic wrap in the fridge. Use within 1 day.
