Three Avocado Hacks You Need to Know

Three Avocado Hacks You Need to Know

Everyone loves a good avocado, but it seems we can never get it right! Here are three tips on how to select, ripen and cut this green, nutrient-dense fruit.

Is it ready to eat?

Peel back the small stem at the top of the avocado. If it comes off easily and is green underneath, this avocado is ripe and good to go! If it’s brown underneath, it’s overripe. Can’t remove the stem? It’s under-ripe and not ready to eat.

But I want to eat it now…
You can ripen avocados by placing them in a brown paper bag along with an apple or banana. The natural plant hormone ethylene releases from ripe fruits and will help to speed up the avocados’ ripening process. Alternatively, wrap the avocado in foil and bake in the oven for 10 minutes to an hour at 90°C.

How on earth do I get it open? 
Cut the avocado in half, lengthwise, around the seed, then simply use the knife to hack at the pit (be careful!) and twist to loosen and remove it. Or use the 3-in-1 Avocado Slicer to split, pit, slice and scoop avocados safely and easily.
