Fancy two little avocado tips this Tuesday morning? Well, since it’s hard to judge those green scrumptious monsters from outside, we often have to play a guessing/touching game to determine if they are ready to be eaten or not. Sadly, the squeezing trick is not always effective!
Here it is: I read that if you flick the little brown belly button with your finger and check the inside, you will be able to tell if the avocado is ripe. Well, if the inside has a rich light green colour that means it’s ready, but if it’s darker green or brownish colour, then it’s not good anymore so don’t bother buying it.
Also, a wine cork opener is super nifty when it comes to removing avocado pits. Simply insert the tip and twist. It's much easier and safer than a knife and less messy than a spoon :)
