How to cut an avocado properly:

1. Tip: Use a small paring knife – no need for a huge butcher knife.

2. Cut your avocado vertically all the way around. You’ll feel the knife hit the seed as you go around.

3. Once you’ve cut it in half, turn your avocado the other way (keeping it vertical) to cut it in half again all the way around.

4. Twist the avocado around the seed and pull it apart.

5. Twist again and you’ll have four equal pieces!

6. Grip the seed with your hands (or use a spoon) and pull it off. Don’t use a knife.

7. Peel off the skin from each 1/4 piece, and mash or dice however you like.
