    Jim Davis: Hi, I am Jim Davis for Harris Teeter. I'm going to show you all the ways to cut an avocado.

    First, we take our chef's knife, go right down through the middle of the avocado so that we cut around the stem and all the way around and simply roll our avocado around until we've cut all the way through. Then grasping both halves twist it slightly. Then take our chef's knife and pop the seed up. Always make sure that you push it off the easy way like that.

    Now we have our cut avocado with the seed removed. I'll take a large spoon, we just get right down behind the peel and pull it out and there is our peeled avocado.

    How To Slice AvocadoTo slice it we simply -- and there is our sliced avocado.
