Tip of the Day: Ahhh Avocados

In Tips on April 6, 2011 at 2:45 pm

You’re having eight over for a Mexican themed evening and you’re getting ready to make Guacamole when you realize the avocados are still rock hard. Forget running out to the store and hunting for softer ones, there’s a quick fix.

Pierce the avocado several times with a sharp knife.  Put in the microwave on 50% power for 20 seconds then turn the avocado and nuke for another 20 seconds.  Let rest at room temp for 45 minutes to an hour.  At this point you should be able to cut into it without a problem. You’ve not only saved your guacamole but time and money!

Happy Partying!

  1. I have never heard this before!! But will try very soon. I’ve had that problem before. If mine are very hard, I place them in a brown paper bag to get them to ripen faster, but what a trick for when you have to do it even faster.
