Sonia's Avocado Tips 

Choose avocados that are soft to the touch but not too ripe. If they are too hard and need ripening, place them in a paper bag with a slice of apple and set aside overnight with the bag closed 

The best way to cut the avocado is to slice it down the middle and wiggle it so the two halves are separated, then remove the large pit and gently peal the skin off. Cut lengthwise, then dice 

Don’t cut the avocado until you’re ready to use it! Otherwise, squeeze some lemon juice on it to prevent it from discolouring
