Making Avocado Bacon Sandwiches
15. Fun with the Seed
Wash the avocado pit under cool running water, you don't need soap to clean it.
With your fingers gently wipe away and remove any of the green fruit that might
be on the pit. Rinse it well and then blot it dry with a paper towel. Carefully
push three toothpicks into the thickest width of avocado, you want to push the
toothpicks into the pit about a 1/2" deep. (It's okay if you push them in
deeper or even a little less) The toothpicks will help suspend the avocado pit
in water and keep the top part of the pit in fresh air and the fat base of the
pit under the surface of the water. Suspend the pit over a glass filled with
water....the toothpicks will rest on the rim of the glass and hold the pit in
place so it doesn't sink to the bottom.
