Avocado

Can you freeze avocado? I've never eaten avocado before but started adding it to smoothies and now I'm going to give some to DD. I can buy a whole bag of them at Coscto for the same price as buying 3 at the grocery store but we won't use them that quickly. Just wondering if there is a way to freeze them?

Yes. The best way is to purée with a little lime juice (or lemon) to help combat oxidation. Then put in ice cube tray in freezer, once frozen put the cubes in a freezer bag and try to get all the air out. Drop a few in the blender in your smoothies and enjoy.

Re: Avocado

I keep ripe ones in the fridge. I leave them on the counter until they ripen perfectly and then they can stay in the fridge for quite some time.

Re: Avocado

You can freeze the pitted and peeled halves too, although they're never quite the same when they thaw. Still totally edible but just a bit mushier.

Re: Avocado

Some countries like the Philippines make avocado ice cream. Freezing works great for them.

I also buy the Costco bag and ripen then put in fridge. They last a long time that way.

Re: Avocado

I've been freezing them by just cutting them up and putting them in baggies and they are usually just fine. Taste good slightly thawed too, or thawed a bit... we had them on a road trip when they were still pretty cold but almost all the way thawed - my husband said it tasted like ice cream! haha

I did just find one that got lost in the freezer that had brown spots all over it so I'll have to try the lemon/lime ice cube tray idea.

I do the same with letting them ripen on the counter and then putting them in the fridge if too many are ripe at once. They usually last us almost a week that way... or did before 4 of us instead of 1 of us suddenly liked them and they don't last. lol

By the way, if you want one to ripen faster than the others (because sometimes, none of ours are ripe enough when we want them), I noticed that whenever they are under the bananas, they seem to ripen a lot more quickly!
