Listening to how many people cut their hands on #avocados on @npr I’m sort of surprised. I learned to cut avocados while working in restaurants young, and have only had a couple of tiny cuts - I used to cut hundreds a day. I’m going to try to explain my method...
First, always remove the stem. If the avocado underneath is bright green, it’s ripe. Cutting unripe avocados is probably a big reason people cut themselves, I’m guessing. Put it in a paper bag for a day and it will be softer - it’s worth the wait for taste, too!
