How to Peel an Avocado Without Breaking a Sweat
Step 1. Wash Your Avocados
Give your avocado a good wash either by hand or using a brush. This washes away any excess soil, and consequently, any bacteria (like E. coli) situated on the fruit’s surface.
This is especially important if you bought them fresh instead of pre-packaged.
Step 2. Slice Lengthwise
On a cutting board, place the avocado and cut it lengthwise. Start slicing around the middle part until you cut the avocado in half.
Give it a little twist when breaking it apart and you will have a nicely cut avocado.
