The Technique


Avocados are a delicious ingredient that may be used to enhance salads, sandwiches & some of your favorite main dish specialties ranging from simple dips & appetizers to nachos. Hass avocados, one of the most popular varieties, are grown in Mexico, Peru, Chile & California, weigh approximately 6 to 7 ounces & are a nutrient dense fruit loaded with vitamin K, vitamin C, potassium, folate & fiber. Avocados may be found on trees classified under the Lauraceae family & more specifically the fruit is considered to be a berry with soft buttery flesh containing one centrally located seed in the middle.

Carefully insert the paring knife into the top, center portion of the fruit resting the base on the cutting board. Run the knife lengthwise around the fruit using the seed as a guide ending where you began. Pick up the fruit & twist it open exposing the flesh. Carefully remove the seed with the tip of the paring knife pointing away from you. Slice the flesh lengthwise, then crosswise using the paring knife. Insert a spoon between the skin & the flesh of each half loosening it all the way around. Remove the diced avocado with the spoon.
