How to Pit an Avocado
Grab a firm grip of the avocado and slice in half lengthwise while simultaneously rotating.
Give the avocado a twist to separate the two halves.
Hold the half with the pit in it, and cautiously knock the sharp end of the blade into the pit. Twist to remove the pit.
Use the back of your thumb, an edge of a cutting board, or a trash can, to safely remove the pit from the sharp knife blade.
