Of course, cooking with avocado starts with one thing. Choosing the right avocado!
How many times do you think you did it right, only to come home and find it wasn’t quite ripe enough? Choosing the right avocado is actually quite simple, if you remember three things; Color, Texture and Firmness. Is the avocado green? Bright green or Dark green, almost black? A ripe avocado will have a dark green, almost black skin. How about the texture? The skin should have a slightly bumpy texture. Now, check for firmness. A ripe avocado with yield to gentle pressure applied to it, without indenting in and feeling mushy. Keep in mind, if you are purchasing avocados at the grocery store to use throughout the week, you will want to get some that are not nearly as ripe. You can always ripen an avocado by placing it in a paper bag with a banana. Sound crazy? It really works!! Ripe bananas contain a natural plant hormone called ethylene, that will trigger ripening. The bag traps the ethylene, and the avocado will ripen quicker, sometimes even overnight! Avocados From Mexico’s website has loads of tips and tricks from everything to selecting the perfect avocado to how to cut them, to countless recipes.
I loaded my guacamole up with lots of yumminess, full of color and flavor. Avocados From Mexico, tomatoes, jalapeños, red onion, lime and cilantro — but don’t stop there!
