Tip: Pitting an Avocado

Making guacamole is fun, but pitting an avocado can be un-fun if you haven’t learned this easy trick.

Pretty much you’re gonna cut your avocado in half. Then you’re going to take your knife – preferably a sharp one – and you’re gonna hack it right into the side of the pit. Like this:

And then you’re going to gently wiggle your knife around a little, thereby loosening up the pit…and then you just pop out the pit using your knife to push the pit away from the avocado half! Look! It’s a pit!

Pretty easy! Yeah? I was impressed with myself when I figured this out a few years ago. But, that’s just me :)
