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.
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!
