How to choose avocado
You can judge the ripeness of avocado by pressing or pinching the fruit. If it's hard to press, you can't pinch it at all, it means it's not mature yet. It can be bought, but it needs to be left for a few days before eating. If it's soft, it means that the flesh is rotten, and maybe it's black, so don't buy it. If the softness and hardness are moderate, and you can feel it slightly, it is the most suitable state for eating. Cut with a knife, the inside is tender yellow green, very light color. No dark spots are the best avocado.
Storage method of avocado
Hard avocados can be left for a long time. If you buy a hard avocado and want it to soften faster, place it in a warm place. If you want to delay softening, put it in a cool place or in the refrigerator. The avocado must be freshly eaten or else it will soon oxidize and turn yellow. The cut avocado is very easy to darken, you can apply a little lemon juice, wrap it in plastic wrap, and place it for oxidation. But still try to eat as fast as possible, and it will easily become dark when left overnight.
How to cut avocado
The avocado is usually cut with a knife and cut vertically, and then the circle of the avocado is also cut vertically. In this way, only the large round nucleus in the middle is still connected to the pulp. Hold the avocado lightly with your hand and turn it gently to open the fruit. Then you will see a big core inside. Cut it in with a knife, rotate it left and right a little, and the nucleus is pulled out by the knife. Some fruits and stones have been separated, making it easier to remove the stones. Some fruits are tightly connected to the stone core, and you need to use a knife to help, otherwise you will not get the stone core. If you want to slice, you can even cut it with skin. The advantage of doing so is that it doesn't dirty your hands. The skin is not eaten, just throw it away when placing the plate. Peeling and cutting is also possible. It will cut better, but it will stain your hands and stick green paste on your hands. Place a clean, damp cloth or napkin to wipe your hands.
