Obviously I know you eat it (well the baby will, I will not they're disgusting)

But I mean, what do I do with it? How do I get in? Do I peel it? Just hack straight into it? And then how do I get the lovely neat little slices to be ... Well lovely and neat?

I do have real things going on in my life too I swear grin

You chuck it in the bin.
With any olives you may have.
They're both utterly foul and have a nerve calling themselves food.

Run a knife around the 'circumference' of the avocados to cut it in half. take the stone out and then scoop out the flesh. It should scoop out in one piece holding its shape quite well. Then you can slice it up.

I love an avocado myself. If feeling lazy I just mash it up with dash of Worcestershire sauce.

Cut it in half, take out the stone, cut into slices or cubes and scoop them out with a spoon. Also YABVVVVU not to like avocados, they are delicious!

You cut into it in the knowledge that there's a big stone in the middle...so you cut all round and then sort of tear it in half once your knife meets where you first cut.

Then pop the stone out. I ADORE them. How can people not!

Eat avocado with EVERYTHING. Everything!

I agree put it in the bin, don't do it to the baby capes they are the devils snot!

Falling that youtube how to open an avocado

I slice round and open, no idea how to get the stone out neatly though.

I've been having it chunky with chopped green chilli and lime juice, crispy bacon and a toasted bagel. Yummmmm 😋

Arf grin that would be my initial reaction, but clearly my baby has much more middle class taste than me, he likes hummus too hmm wierdo!

I love mashed avocado on toast!

Why are you feeding your baby something you think is disgusting?

Stand it up on its fat bottom with the pointy end sticking up. Slice it in half vertically, running your knife around the stone. Twist the two halves to separate them, then remove the stone (you might need to jab the knife into the stone a little bit to prise it out).

Fill the holes with pickle and eat with a teaspoon.

Not the circumference (duh) that would man around the middle. Sorry. You cut it in half long ways. There must be a youtube video for this smile

needs to be ripe obviously
Cut around it completely through to the stone.longwise .Hold the halves in each hand and twist - one half should come away from the stone, and the other half will still hang on to the stone, (but should come out easily.)
The skin should peel off from the narrow end nice and easily then you should have two halves, ready to slice .
I love avocado,

Do you work in an upmarket supermarket and did you buy a trolley full of them reduced?

tibbawyrots Mon 10-Oct-16 10:20:36

Mash it onto toast.
Yum. 😋

lasttimeround Mon 10-Oct-16 10:20:43

You can also once you've removed Stone cut it into chunky sliver lengthways makes a nice squishy baton. But I recommend brown bread toasted, avocado and salt. Fit for a queen - let the baby have bananaswink

dear lord, I must have been typing slowly - no-one had answered when I started... !

MyBreadIsEggy Mon 10-Oct-16 10:22:48

Was also about to say that you take it from the fridge, and put it straight into the bin....but Arf beat me to it.
They taste like soap hmm

NoCapes Mon 10-Oct-16 10:23:07

Ah I didn't even think to YouTube - I use MN like most people use Google these days blush

Meadows doesn't everyone do that? My kids like lots of things that I don't and I like lots of things that they don't, how will they know if they don't try?
Anyhow ExP has already have him avocado a few times and he likes it

He also likes the dogs food though - I'm not sure how closely related these 2 things are

YoungGirlGrowingOld Mon 10-Oct-16 10:23:09

If the stone goes rogue and won't come out, karate chop it with a knife, twist and yank. Also confirms whether your knives need sharpening smile

YoungGirlGrowingOld Mon 10-Oct-16 10:23:47

And it's really good for their brain development!

jazzypants101 Mon 10-Oct-16 10:23:57

The only acceptable way to eat avocado is to make guacamole with it. Dont know how he does it but I will only ever eat my bils guacamole... any shop version doesnt cut it at all.

Dp has taken to requesting avocados in the house at al times and looks down his nose at me for not liking them, he eats his with chicken and bacon on a sandwich. and I am inferior for not knowing how to make this amazing concoction apparently hmm.

Mashed with a can of tuna is my favourite and fastest lunch. Probably not with the lime and Tabasco for a baby!
