How to Make an Avocado Rose
Select a ripe but firm avocado. Slice the avocado in half lengthwise Use the half without the avocado pit or seed Turn the avocado half face down. Peel the avocado. Turn the avocado perpendicular to your body with the smaller end pointing towards your dominant hand. Using a sharp knife, make vertical slices on your dominant hand side Continue to make vert slices, as thinly as possible, while maintaining the shape, all the way across Once you’re doing slicing, adjust the slice to maintain the original shape of the avocado. Slowly and gently, starting on your dominant hand side, begin to fan out the slices as shown. Continue to fan out the slices, into a thin line. Make sure to be as gentle and not dent any of the slices. The thinner you can fan the pieces out, the better. Once you’re finished fanning the avocado out, it should look something like this. Slowly begin to curl the right side of the avocado upwards and inwards. Continue to curl the right side inwards into a circle as shown. Once the right side is “tucked in,” make sure the pieces are still stuck together. Make sure to go slowly to maintain the rose shape. Repeat the previous step with the left side, curling upwards and inwards Continue to cure the left side around until it closes the circle…and you have your avocado rose!
