Fancy an Avocado Trick?

Monday, March 19, 2012

Don’t you just hate it when you buy an avocado and at home you realize it's under-ripe? Choosing avocados is a bit tricky - kind of a gamble, isn't it?
Well, here is a nifty trick that involves a banana and will speed up the ripening process in no time. According to Kalisa "ripe bananas release a lot of ethylene, so placing one in a closed paper bag with your under-ripe avocados will speed up the process". Anjali gave it a go and she said it worked like a charm. I did the same this morning and I can’t wait to check on it tonight. Eek, I must be such a dork for being that excited:).

Lovelies, will you try it too? xo

P.S: Two more takes on avocados.

I love avocados but as you said they are tricky to buy. Most of the time I get frustrated with waiting for days till they get softer. I'm going to try this today too. You always have the coolest tips. Thanks, Grace.

Avocados are my dream but in Brazil people eat them as desert and they are super high on water-content. I hate that. I like me a nice and creamy avocado... sniff sniff.

I use apples and they work great as well but I didn't know bananas did the trick too.
These little things get me excited also.

Thanks, Grace and I'm so glad that you are trying it out too:)

Diana Mieczan said...

Oh no, Ana! Wish I could send you a creamy avocado right now:)

Diana Mieczan said...

Jeanette, apples are great for it too as they release almost the same amount of ethylene.

Oh my gosh... this is fantastic! I will be doing this for sure.

Although, I also use my other trick which is called living in NYC and shopping at grocery stores where everything is a little too ripe anyway. HA!

I don't even put them in a bag together. For years I've been putting my avocados and bananas in a fruit bowl together. Bananas tend to ripen everything more quickly, so I only put avocados in with them.

Diana Mieczan said...

Ry, I LOVE your trick:) haha
