7 How to Peal an Avocado Hold one half of the avocado in your hand. Insert a spoon between the skin and the pulp (the edible portion of the avocado). Gently remove the pulp by running the spoon around the edge keeping it as close to the skin as possible. Repeat with other half. If you're careful, you can remove the pulp in one piece. Scrape out any remaining pulp that may be attached to the skin. Use the spoon to remove any discolored spots on the pulp (these will have an off color taste). © Jennifer Choquette

8 How To Mince Garlic Clove of garlic To peel a garlic clove: put the clove on the cutting board, use the flat side of a chefs knife and press or whack it with the heal of your hand. Cut away the woody end of the garlic clove where it was attached to the bulb. Discard the skins and clean the cutting board before mincing First chop the garlic roughly into about 3 pieces. Mince the chopped garlic by chopping it with a rocking motion: Keep the tip of the knife on the cutting board and move the handle up and down. Keep your left hand on top of the blade. Stop every few strokes and use the blade of the knife to draw the garlic pieces back into a neat pile before continuing. Scrape off the garlic that has stuck to the side of the knife blade, too.
