Best Avocado Recipes
Buying and storing tips: Avocados ripen within 3-4 days after purchasing, depending on their firmness when purchased. Do not select avocados that are soft to the touch unless you plan to eat them immediately. It ripens quicker when placed beside banana and apples. Once peeled, the avocado will discolour over time. Add lemon or lime juice, store in a glass jar and they can be frozen.
