Have you heard of "Avocado Hand"? It's when you misjudge the ripeness of an avocado and accidentally cut yourself. It can happen to even the most experienced avocado eaters -- my sister has gone to the ER not once, but TWICE with avocado injuries.
Well, the story is making the rounds in social media again, so I think it's time for a refresher from Pamela's Kitchen.
Jan DeLyser of the California Avocado Commission joined me in the kitchen last year, and she taught me a really neat trick that I didn't know before. It's the "nick and peel" instead of "whack and scoop," which is where people get in to trouble with their avocado cutting.
It's a game-changer.
