Re: The lonely Avacodo...

I never know how to pick one that's not bruised.

However, once the admiral picks one out, I use a knife - not a sharp one, but a stainless steel knife that you would find in any kitchen - to cut the long way around the avacado, and reveal the pit. I then take the knife, and whack the blade into the pit so that it looks like a hand on a clock. I then rotate the knife, like a hand on a clock, and the pit comes out clean and easy. (I learned this by watching sushi chefs) If I quarter the fruit, I find that I can easily peel the skin off by hand.

My favorite way to eat is to quarter the avacado, and shake Tobasco on it... Yum!
