When I was a kid I never remember even hearing the word avocado! I can't remember one single time I ate them as a kid. Maybe it was because I was raised by country cooking parents and grandparents. It took me until my early forties to really know what an avocado was and to appreciate all the recipes you can create with them. Check out these 15 Recipes Made With Avocado to broaden your use of avocados!
Avocados seems to be the hot item in the produce section. I have a hard time finding a good one and sometimes there are none left at all. Do you know how to pick the perfect avocado? It took me a while but I think I have the hang of it now. First, go for the avocado that has the darkest skin. Second, place the avocado in the palm of your hand and gently squeeze. Don't squeeze to hard because it can bruise. Last, if the avocado seems firm to your squeeze chances are very good it is ripe!
