Avocado Tips and Tricks
Before you begin your avocado cooking journey, make sure that you know a few basic things about avocados. These tips will help you learn all the right things so that each of your avocado recipes turns out just perfect!
How to cut an avocado: Take a knife and cute your avocado in half, long ways. Open it up and remove the pit. Take a spoon and place it underneath the skin and slowly scoop the acocado out so that it keeps its shape. Then you can slice it up howevery you need to!
How to keep an avocado from turning brown: If you store an avocado in your fridge that you have already cut, store it inan airtight container with a sliced red onion. This will keep it from browning! And don’t worry, your avocado wont taste or smell like onions after! It’s magic!
How to pick an avocado: When you are at the store, pick up the avocado and put some pressure on it with your fingers. If it is rock solid, it’s not ripe enough. If it squishes, its TOO ripe. You want one that dents just a bit!
Keep your recipes in mind: If you are using avocados all week long, you don’t want to get ALL ripe avocados! Make sure to get a few ripe ones and also some that aren’t quite ripe yet. That way, they will ripen throughout the week and be ready for you later instead of going bad!
