One way to do this is to cut the avocado in half, remove the pit, and scoop the flesh into a blender or food processor. Blend the avocado until it forms a smooth paste, then pour the mixture into a fine-mesh strainer or cheesecloth-lined sieve set over a bowl.
Gently press on the avocado with a spoon or spatula to extract as much oil as possible. The oil can then be collected and stored in a clean, airtight container.
Another method for preparing avocado oil is to heat the avocado in a pan over medium heat until the flesh becomes soft and the oil starts to release.
You can then use a spoon or spatula to scoop the avocado from the pan and press it through a strainer or cheesecloth to extract the oil.
Regardless of the method you use, it is important to use ripe avocados for the best flavor and oil yield.
You can also add seasonings or other ingredients, such as lemon juice or herbs, to the avocado before blending or heating to add extra flavor to the oil.
