How to Pit an Avocado
How to pit and slice an avocado.
Slice in half lengthwise around the pit, then twist the two halves in opposite directions to separate.
Hold the half with the pit in a kitchen towel. Carefully knock the bottom end of a knife blade into the pit.
Twist the knife to remove the pit. Use the edge of a cutting board or trash can to pull the pit off the knife.
Slice or dice the avocado in its skin with a paring knife and scoop out the flesh with a spoon.
