Avocados are the darlings of the produce world right now.  A few things to keep in mind when buying and using these tasty fruits:

  • Avoid avocados with cuts, dents, or soft patches.  If it feels firm, it will ripen in two to five days.  If it's uniformly soft, eat the same day.
  • Keep avocados at room temperature until ripe, then store in the refrigerator.  You can speed up ripening by placing them in a bag with bananas - the ethylene gas production will stimulate the ripening process.
  • High heat destroys the healthy compounds in the avocado and can potentially leave a bitter taste, so stick to cold prep or use only low heat sparingly.
  • You can substitute avocado in equal amounts for fats such as butter, margarine, or sour cream.
  • Wrap unused avocado in plastic wrap and refrigerate;  use within 1 to 2 days.
