Better Home Cooking Basics: #13 Keep Ripe Avocados in the Fridge to Prevent Spoiling
To say that I’m obsessed with avocados would be an understatement. I eat them about 4 times a week, at least. I just can’t get enough of the creamy fruit (it’s a fruit it has a seed, a.k.a. a giant pit).
If you’re like me, you buy your avocados when they’re rock hard. You wait patiently for them to ripen on the counter, sometimes putting them in a paper bag to speed the process & then you feel them the day they are perfect for eating - firm but with a little bit of squish. Suddenly you have 4 ripe avocados & only 24 hours in a day. Letting them rot & uneaten is a sacrilege & not an option. Don't worry, just chill them. Yep, if you plan to eat them in the next few days, you can slow the ripening process by sticking them in the fridge so you can enjoy them all week! That is what I call a tiny win for every avocado lover today!
