Now that summer is in full swing and lots of fruits and vegetables are in season, we will be sharing some new produce videos we’ve created. Today I’m sharing with you our video on how to prepare an avocado.

My husband and I both really like avocado and more specifically, guacamole. Sometimes my husband just happens to buy avocados, even if they aren’t on the grocery list, hoping I will make guacamole. I also put avocado in wraps, in a dip like Cowboy Caviar, or in fajitas. If I use the avocados to make guacamole, then after I get them peeled, I mash them up with a fork instead of slicing them. Sometimes I like my dips to be chunky, so I dice the avocado instead of mash it.

If you’d like to start using more avocado but you are not sure how to choose one in the store, check out our Produce Basics.

Next week Christine will share with you our video on cauliflower.

  1. Avocados are a fun food to eat, they’re nutritious, and they’re a good source of monounsaturated fat, which can reduce your risk of heart disease. A recent study found that LDL (or “bad”) cholesterol was lowered when people replaced the saturated fat in their diet with one Hass avocado a day.

  2. Some advice for your website’s visitors:

    If you have an unripe fruit, put it in a dark place for several days. Cut the fruit in half, remove the stone and peel. Then, cut into thin petals or small cubes. The easiest way to consume avocados is to spread the flesh on a piece of bread, drizzle with lemon juice and salt.

    Have a nice day!

  3. To keep an avocado from browning, sprinkle some lemon or lime juice or white vinegar on it after it is cut to keep its green color. A cut avocado will last 1-2 days in the refrigerator.
