3 Tips For Avocado Success
1. Use a pastry blender instead of a fork to mash avocados more quickly.
2. Check an avocado for ripeness by flicking its small stem. If it comes off easily and you can see green underneath, the avocado is ripe. If the stem does not come off or if you see brown underneath it, the avocado is not ripe.
3. To cleanly remove pits, slice around the avocado with a chef’s knife. Twist the two halves apart. Stick the blade sharply into the pit. Lift the knife, twisting the blade if necessary to loosen the pit. Use a large wooden spoon to safely pry the pit off the knife.
