AVOCADOS 101

“Far too many people are looking for the right person instead of trying to be the right person.”  Gloria Steinem

Someone recently gave me a great way to save money on avocados.  First, buy them when they’re on sale.  Have you seen the prices on those little darlings lately?  Second, freeze them.

I didn’t quite believe her when she came out with this idea, but according to this person, who shall remain nameless because I can’t remember who told me this, you simply cut the avocado in half a put it into the freezer in a freezer bag.  Internet research time.

Other advice is to first coat the avocado halves with lemon juice, wrap in plastic wrap, and then place into a freezer bag.

I figured that a small freezer bag would be helpful, but after my first go-round with this I decided that wrapping the avocado in plastic wrap might be a good first step.

The results?

Interesting.  The pictured avocado was simply wrapped in plastic wrap.  It didn’t completely lose its looks.

Bottom line, which is always a good place to end.  Avocados come out of the freezer solid.  A bit like a lethal weapon.  When thawed, they are definitely not good for slicing.  But they have a lovely creamy texture, good for dips and dressings, and also retain their flavor.

Going to think on that.  Or maybe just eat my fresh avocados a lot faster!
