love those avos

this is one of six avocados that come in a package we usually buy each week at the grocery store
if we are lucky they are all at the different stages of ripening from slightly squishy to hard as a rock then you can have a just ripe avo every day
it usually doesnt work that way
they are usually all the same firmness so you do tricks to speed up or slow down the ripening which doesnt always work well
leaving it on the counter or putting it in a paper bag which speeds the ripening process up a lot or putting it in the refrigerator which seems to slow the process down a lot
if you are lucky and get things right you can almost get a good ripe one a day
if you dont guess right you can end up with several mushy dont taste right avos

we like to go to the farmers market here on saturday to pick out our avos
they some of the farmers have them lined up by their squishiness
from hard as a rock to soft to softer you better eat it today

heck they even have an avocado festival here each year since this area grows a lot of avocados
they have examples of all the avos
some are real tiny others are big as a football
they have avo margarita avo ice cream fried avo you name it they do it to the avos

if you are lucky to know someone with an avo tree then you can get real off the tree fresh ones
now those are the best

now avos like eggs got a bad rap for a long time but now they have determined like eggs that they are good for you since they have the good type of fat
avos have become the hipster food or the millennial food
im not either of those but i sure like avos a lot
i always feel like when i eat an avo that im helping my brain heal itsefl

why am i writing about avos this am
this company with some funding from the bill gates foundation has concocted a powder that you can spray on an avocado that inhibits the ripening
you can buy several and they ripen real slow
if you cut into the avo then the process speeds up since the ripening gas get released

this is a big thing for avo growers and those who ship and store them for sale
this stuff is made from plant materials that sounds like its left over from different fruits and veggies and grass no not the pot kind
it appears to be a nontoxic way to delay ripening
although they dont say it it sounds like its all organic

they also are developing ones that can be used on different veggies and fruit that wont be toxic like whats used now

these avos will appear first at costco and harps

someone it seems has been thinking outside the box

i personally would like to thank them
i love avos

avocado toast anyone
