How To Cut Avocados – is this how you do it?

I never realised that I cut avocados completely differently to everyone else.

Everyone else cuts avocados down the centre lengthwise, they hit the stone-hard with their sharp knife, then twist and turn the knife to remove the stone.

GENIUS kitchen tips from our giveaway

Update: The eBook bundle giveaway from my Low-Carb Shop has closed, but look at these amazing kitchen tips that were entered. I’d love to hear more, so please continue to leave your GENIUS kitchen tips in the comments below.

  • Have fun cooking! And wear your glasses, lol…don’t even ask – Pam, US (our lucky winner, congratulations).
  • If the lid is hard to get off a jar of new food, use the handle of a teaspoon. Slide it around until it goes slightly under the lid, lever out until you hear the pop (of the vacuum seal is broken). The lid will come off easily now – Chris
  • Cut a silicon sheet to fit your microwave glass tray and you will never have to clean the junk off the glass again. Just take out the silicone and wash, dry and put back in – Candida
  • Invest in some food-grade silicone lids to cover all your flat-topped bowls and dishes. You not only save money by not having to use cling film all the time, but you also retain your sanity from trying to get that piece of cling film to actually sit on the bowl rather than getting it stuck together on itself, which you eventually curse and throw in the bin in a tight ball – Sheree, Australia.
  • A dampened paper towel in the bag with lettuce helps stop it from getting slimy – Vicki, NZ.
  • To keep mould off your cheese, don’t stick your hands in the package. You can also wrap blocked cheese in a paper towel soaked in vinegar and wrung out. Both these tips will help you keep your Shredded or blocked cheese much longer if not used quickly – Kathleen, US.
  • Use floss to cut goat cheese log into slices – Sally, US.
  • Crumble a stock cube up in the wrapper BEFORE opening it up and pouring it into your cooking. Saves mess and stock sticking to your hands as you try and crumble it over the steam of the cooking – Emma, Australia.
  • Don’t put the alarm clock in the refrigerator when you have a migraine. You will never live it down! 🙂 – Linda
  • Keep a bowl near your “work station” for trash/peelings etc. also clean as you go – Cheryl.

    Hi Libby
    Thank you for your tip regarding cutting avocados widthways. As you said the stone just popped out, amazing! If you would allow me to add an additional tip it is this; after removing the stone cut across the two halves making four equal quarters. There is no need to scoop the flesh out at all because you can peel the skin off cleanly without any flesh on it.
    Thank you for your wonderful website and for sharing your professional skills.
    Kind regards
