1. Starting at the stem of the fruit, insert a sharp paring knife until it makes contact with the pit.
2. Keeping your knife against the pit, run the blade all the way around the fruit. This will create two halves.
3. Hold the fruit with both hands and twist each half in the opposite direction – you will feel the flesh give way from the pit.
4. Pop out the pit with the edge of your knife.
5. Toss the pit and you are ready to eat!
