To ripen faster put out 1 or 2 avocados per day(or however many you use per day) on top of your fridge or in the fruit bowl with other fruits like bananas. That way you will have a constant supply of perfectly ripe avocados ready to go when you need them. Avocados are best eaten when you can flick the stem out with your thumb.
Enjoy making raw salsas, guacamole, dips, cheesecakes & other raw desserts like chocolate mousse, as a spread on some raw crackers...endless uses for both sweet & savoury options. Check out the Dr Libby Recipe Books for lots of recipes using raw organic avocados today!

Avocado is Incredibly Nutritious
What we refer to as “avocado” is the fruit of the avocado tree, called Persea americana. It is the main ingredient in guacamole.
These days, the avocado has become an incredibly popular food among health conscious individuals. It is often referred to as a superfood… which is not surprising given its health properties. There are many kinds of avocados, and the shape (from pear-shaped to round) and color (from green to black) can vary between them. They can also weigh anywhere from 8 ounces (220 grams) to 3 pounds (1.4 kg). The most popular type is called Hass avocado.
It is often called “alligator pear,” which is very descriptive because it tends to be shaped like a pear and have green, bumpy skin… like an alligator. The yellow-green flesh inside the fruit is eaten, but the skin and seed are discarded (you can apparently eat the seeds too if you have a powerful blender like the Optmum 9400 to blitz them up). Avocados are very nutritious.
