Kitchen Tips Tuesday: How To Ripen An Avocado


We love avocados. They are a great source of healthy fats,vitamins and minerals, are rich and creamy and work with a variety of flavor profiles. Often, when we visit the store to buy them, they are hard as a rock, or so mushy, they have practically turned to guac on their own. If you can’t find the perfect, ready to eat avocado, there is still hope to be able to enjoy one with this instant ripening technique.

Wrap the too hard avocado in aluminium foil and bake in a 200 degree oven for about 10 minutes until it reaches the desired level of softness. Extra hard fruit may take a little longer, and “not too far from ripe” ones, may take less. Once it reaches peak perfection, peel, remove the pit, and enjoy!
