The Best Tool to Remove Avocado Skin Very Smooth For Garnish

        When we garnish food with avocado, we want to look our garnish as pretty as possible. Avocado is a very soft fruit and making garnish can be very tricky. Sometimes we have darkness from the skin left on the avocado when we peel an avocado. We can scribe off with a spoon, but a perfectly smooth surface is not perfect anymore for presentation. The solution is a simple scoop loop garnish tool! A really, cool tool to use for avocado and a time saver! Flexible for different sizes of avocado. I bought the set but you can find it sold separately. The tool is called the fruit and vegetable scoop loop, avocado, and mango tool. I use this tool in the crab avocado garnish video below.

How to Prevent Avocado Browning

          An avocado fruit turns brown after we cut it. To use for garnish we need little time before a serve, the best way to delay discoloration sprinkle with lime on lemon juice. I tried a very popular method to leave the pit in avocado half and place in plastic in the refrigerator. Nothing worked for me well more than lemon juice or lime juice but for a really short time.

You maybe have a better suggestion to keep the avocado from darkening. Please, share in comments below.

3. Place upside-down slices on the square of plastic wrap. Spread slices. Place any food on the top you like to wrap in avocado slices.

      This avocado garnish bird is so easy to make and so cute on a glass. We can garnish with this cute bird avocado margarita or avocado smoothie, for example. We need not mushy avocado if it firm enough to stay on glass we can make this bird. The bird beak I made from a small triangle from avocado skin. Make a small cut and place it in. The eyes made with the tip of a knife. I made cuts on the bottom and the top of the avocado slice looks like a feather. The cuts are perfect on my bird because I use a tool called eight blade slicer. However, it is absolutely not necessary to use we can use a paring knife. I just describe how I have done it.

      If you search online for avocado art, so many beautiful creations can be found! Some creations have so many details, so it probably took a person a few hours or even longer to make it and of course, talent. The most impressive avocado artwork I saw on YouTube was from Italian Vincenzo Scuruchi self-taught artist. His “Owl Food Art” is so detailed and impressive work. My website is for easy food decor and if I make it, you can easily make the same.

    Hi Gala
    I found the lemon and lime juice method did not work either. And several remedies online didn’t work for me. My method of preventing as much darkening as possible (which wouldn’t work for this garnish) is to put each cut piece asap into a dressing that covers the entire piece. I put this into an airtight plastic container and store in the refrigerator (sometime in the freezer). I think the secret is preventing as mlittle air on the surface as possible. Lemon and lime juice may work if the avocado is submerged like a pickle. Haven’t tried that yet.

      Mary, lime and lemon slow down the darkening but not preventing it. I didn’t try to keep avocado pieces in dressing, need to try. Great idea to keep leftovers of avocado for salad, thank you for sharing! I mixed avocado with cream cheese and avocado not darkening. I didn’t try to keep the spread in the refrigerator but when was taking photos avocado sandwiches, it stays so long pretty green. Need to do more reading and learning about avocado!
