Avocados (the more the merrier)
TIP: choose avocadoes that have a slight give when pressed. If they’re too ripe, it is difficult to get in-tact slices. If you are making something where slices aren’t needed (such as guacamole), more give is good!
With a sharp knife, cut the avocado from skin to core the length-wise. The avocado should be cut around the entire circumference.
Pull two halves apart. One half should have the pit still attached. Horizontally whack blade of knife into pit, and the knife should lift the pit out with ease!
To make thin slices of avocado, place an avocado half, flesh side up, on the cutting board. With the skin of the avocado still intact, run tip of knife through avocado to make even slices
Lift the slices out of the skin, with a spoon, by scooping the avocado out like you’re scooping a pumpkin!
