Expert Tips

To get to that luscious avocado quickly, first cut it lengthwise in half around the pit. On a solid surface and with your other hand out of the way, hit the pit with the blade of a sharp knife so it sticks, then twist the knife to easily remove the pit from the avocado. Carefully remove the pit from the knife with a paper towel because it's very slippery. Peel off the leathery skin with your fingers.
