Q:How do you pick an avocado?
The two tricks that work for me:
- Looking for a brown sheen on the skin. Green means it’s not ready, which is cool if you’re not using it that same day. Black means it’s too ripe, so it’s the one you want to pass on! Brown means it’s just right!
- Placing the avocado in your palm and giving it a gentle squeeze. If it feels like it’s going to mush up, pass on it! If it gives just a little, you can use it that same day. If it’s a little hard, you can buy it and use it in 2-3 days.
Hope that helps!
