Did you know an Avocado is considered a berry?! Yes, a fruit. Here is a little science lesson for you……a fruit is a seed bearing structure that grows from the ovary of a flowering plant vs. a vegetable which consists of other plant parts like roots, leaves & stems (….think carrots, broccoli and asparagus). So, being that the big round pit inside the avocado is a seed, it makes the avocado a fruit!
Whatever it’s considered, I love them! They’re deliciously packed with 20 vitamins and minerals including vitamin C,E,K, B6, Folate and Potassium. Although high in fat, it’s the kind of mono saturated “good” fat that, in moderation, keeps cholesterol lower.
My favorite way to eat avocado is chopped into pieces with feta cheese, tomatoes and greek dressing, but guacamole is yummy, too. Harold Import Company has an All-in-One Avocado tool that makes cutting, pitting and scooping avocado, for use in my favorite recipes, a breeze. The All-in-One Avocado tool is actually two pieces. Pull the lighter colored green end out to reveal a small knife that perfectly offers control in cutting the egg shaped fruit. After cutting, use one of the two serrated teeth to dislodge the pit and finally scoop all the soft fruit with the curved end of the tool. You can use the knife to slice avocado into pieces prior to scooping flesh out, too!
Before I had the All-in-One Avocado tool, I would use a knife to cut, spoon to scoop, and fork to mash….a pain! Thank you Harold Import Company for a fantastically convenient tool! REAL MOM RECOMMENDED!!
