It may look cool on TV, but please do not pit an avocado by stabbing the pit with a knife (unless you aren't that keen on continuing to have normal sensation and function in your hand). Instead here are five alternatives:
1. Pop the pit out from behind with your thumbs.
2. Scoop out the pit with a spoon.
3. Cut the avocado into smaller and smaller slices until you can easily remove the pit with your fingers.
4. Peel the avocado and smash it with a fork until the pit come free.
5. Avoid eating avocados.
I admit the last one may be a bit extreme...but I am rather partial to moving and feeling all my fingers.
