How to Cut an Avocado

Here’s a quick video demonstration showing the technique I use to cut and dice an avocado.  Avocados are great in salads, sandwiches, as a garnish, and of course the primary ingredient in guacamole.  Cutting them up though can be a bit tricky, because of the large seed in middle.  Fortunately, that large seed also gives you can opportunity to look cool in front of your friends.

To cut up an avocado, follow these steps:

  • Start at the top (stem side) of the avocado and cut down lengthwise until your knife hits the nut.  If your avocado is ripe, this shouldn’t take much pressure.
  • Then moving the avocado, and the knife, cut around the nut until you go all 360 degrees and have cut all the way around the nut
  • Put the knife down, and using both hands, twist the two halves of the avocado apart; the seed should stay on one side
  • Using your knife, and a gentle “chopping” motion, cut into the seed and give your knife a twist to the side.  The seed should pop right out and stick to the knife.  Alternatively, if you squeeze the avocado half with the seed in your palm, it should pop right out as well.
  • You can bang you knife on your cutting board to release the seed.
  • You can either use a spoon, and scrape out the flesh using the skin as a guide, to get it out whole – you can then slice it up; or use a knife to dice the avocado right in the skin, before you scope it out

With a little practice, you’ll be able to get through an avocado in no time at all.
