I am so blessed! My mother in law brought me 50 Avocados today and she is coming back with that many more again. The food pantry in her small town had too many to use and are sharing with us. I did a little research on the internet and found that they freeze well if mashed into guacamole first.
Avocados are a rare treat for us and they are sooo good for you. They are usually $1 each, and I wait and snag them when they are half price. A ripe avocado is dark skinned and soft, but not gushy. (Although a few of the ones I received were gushy and they were just fine.)
Avocados make nice facials, check out this video:
I think that just plain avocado would be great for a facial too. I'll try it today and let you know :).
Avocados are easy to prepare and eat and are great mashed, cubed in a salad, sliced on a sandwich, or just eaten out of the shell with a spoon!
2. Step 2--Use a spoon to scoop the meat into a bowl. Add salt and lemon juice for flavor and to prevent browning. 4 Avocados take 1/2 teaspoon of salt and 1 Tablespoon of lemon juice.
Guacamole makes a great chip dip, salad dressing, or sandwich spread.
