How to Dice an Avocado

Brush up on your Avocado Skills!   There isn't anything these little fruits / veggies?? aren't good on.  I don't so far as to mix them with cocoa and call it a pie (put I know people who do!)

I do love to put them on a lot of things... and I love to feed them to Charlie as a snack.

Note: Avocado color does not always indicate ripeness. Ripe avocados will yield to firm gentle pressure in the palm of your hand.

Step 2 - Place the avocado in the palm of your hand.

Step 3 - Gently squeeze without applying your fingertips as this can cause bruising and feel.

Ripe: If the avocado yields to firm gentle pressure you know it's ripe and ready-to-eat.

Unripe: If the avocado does not yield to gentle pressure it is considered still "firm" and will be ripe in a couple of days.

Overripe: If the avocado feels mushy or very soft to the touch it may be very ripe to overripe.
