Hi, my name is Robert Nasser from Dinner Done. Today we’re talking about basic vegetable prep. And now we’re going to show you how to peel and pit an avocado. You got to need a cutting board and a knife for it. You can also put a small towel or something similar to it underneath your cutting board so the cutting board doesn’t move around so much on you.
Let’s talk a little bit about avocados. Most of the avocados sold here in the United States are the Hass avocado, these little small black skinned ones. You may see some larger ones on the store. What’s we’re going today is going to work just the same with those bigger ones over these smaller black Hass avocados.
To start you’re going to lay your avocado on your cutting board, take the knife and make a cut until you feel the pit of the avocado but don’t cut into deep and then bring it around maintaining the same line until you’ve reached your starting point. Now at this point put your knife down, take both halves of the avocado and twist gently. There you have the pit in one half and no pit in the other. To get the pit out without struggling too much take your knife and very carefully hit the pit until the knife sticks in it and twist to one side and there you have the pit. Carefully take the seed off and with this you can do one of two things.
If you’re planning to make a Guacamole or any type of sauce with your avocado and you’re going to keep it in the fridge for a few hours. Hang on to the pit. Once you’ve done making your dish you’re going to put the pit in with the Guacamole or salsa or anything you’re making to keep the avocados from turning brown or oxidizing. So we’re going to se this guy after the side for now.
Next step, as for peeling it you’ve got two options. You can just take and start peeling the skin gently, see how it comes right off. Or if you’d like, you could use a spoon and coming underneath it and take the whole thing out, most of the time you’re not going to really need to do that. Now you’ve got your avocado half and now you could dice it or slice it or do anything you want with it. And that is how to peel and pit an avocado.
