Checking for Ripe Fruit
If you eat a lot of avocado (and why wouldn’t you?) you know there’s an art to knowing when they are ripe and ready.
You have to learn to feel it out. Using the palm of your hand (not your fingers) gently squeeze the fruit. If it’s not ready, it will feel pretty firm.
Ripe avocados give to gentle pressure. They may appear darker than their unripe counterparts, but it can be difficult to accurately eyeball it.
On the other hand, the overripe avocado will feel mushy. Open these bad boys and you’re likely to see brown spots. If it’s spoiled, it will smell rancid. Sadly, you missed your chance.
If you have firm fruit at home and you don’t want to wait 4-5 days for nature to do its thing, you can speed things along by placing the avocado in a brown paper bag with an apple or banana.
How to Make Smashed Avocado
