I bet you don’t wash your avocados before cutting it because you don’t eat the skin.


The skin might contain pesticides and harmful bacteria! They can contaminate your knife which also touches the insides of the fruit as you cut it.


Take a moment to wash the skin by scrubbing it before you proceed to cut it.

Tip: You might have a good memory, but it is good practice to label the containers with “Avocado Puree” and the date of production.

Some portion might turn a little brown, you can just remove that part or mix it all up.
