Food How to Be Sure Your Avocado's Ripe
An Indonesian Company Invented a Mango Avocado
<p>The fruit hybrid looks like an avocado and eats like a mango, sort of</p>The avocado will inevitably go down as one of the defining foods of 2017. But just because we’ve turned the calendar over to a new year doesn’t mean that the fatty stone fruit’s complete domination of our culinary consciousness will slow down anytime soon.
If you purchase avocados, you probably know the proper technique for checking for ripeness. Give the flesh a soft squeeze, and it should yield to moderate pressure.
However, sometimes a soft avocado is actually bruised. Since there's nothing more disappointing than slicing into a browned avocado, I've got another way of testing for ripeness. Flick the small brown stem off the top of the avocado. If it comes off easily and you can see green underneath it, the avocado is ripe! If you see brown, the avocado is overripe and will have some browned spots. If the stem doesn't come off, it's not ripe yet.
The Easy Trick for Keeping Your Avocados Fresh for 6 Months—Really!
Everyone’s experienced the dreaded brown avocado. It might be from cutting one open that’s been sitting on your counter a few days longer than it should have or from half of an avocado that you attempted to store in your fridge for your next meal. It hurts to throw out food that you let go to waste, especially when it’s pricey. (Do you know the dirty origin of the word avocado?)There’s an easy trick that lets you keep avocados fresh and edible all the way from Valentine’s Day to the start of school in August, and it’s as simple as throwing them in the freezer.
