Avocados are are in the middle of their peak season right now. Amongst other uses, they are wonderful in salads, guacamole, sandwiches or smoothies. I added a little avocado to my Caprese salad today and next week, I’ll be making a chilled avocado soup. Now is the time to enjoy this delicious and nutritious fruit!
In case you were wondering the easiest way to get to that avocado-y goodness, here’s a little photo guide…
Using a sharp knife, cut the avocado in half lengthwise all the way around the pit.
Gently twist the halves to separate.
Carefully give the seed a whack with a sharp knife, so that the knife sticks in the seed.
Holding the knife in one hand and the avocado in the other, give a little twist to loosen and remove the seed.
Use your fingers to gently loosen the avocado from its skin.
Lie the avocado on its flat side and slice or dice it!
