How to slice (almost) every fruit

See how a professional chef prepares a wide range of fruits with some simple chops, cuts, and slices. Chef Frank Proto of the Institute of Culinary Education demonstrates “how to slice every fruit” (well, quite a few of them) in this Epicurious video. He includes a few helpful tips, including how to remove an avocado seed, how to shake pomegranate seeds free with a heavy spoon, and why it’s important to make a flat side on round fruits.

Featured produce includes durian, cherimoya, lychee, kiwi berries, carambola aka star fruit, rambutan, passion fruit, and dragonfruit.
