Avocados are astounding!
Our best tips and easy recipes:

From this luscious Guacamole Salad to an Avocado Butter for bread and an authentic Mexican "Guac" from Alicia's friend Petra, our kitchens wouldn't be the same without avocados. Here are a few fun facts and tips:
  • Avocados are considered a fruit, but technically they're a berry of the flowering avocado tree.
  • It's true avocados are high in fat, (about 75% of calories), but it's desirable, monounsaturated fat. Eating avocados has been shown to lower cholesterol.
  • Other nutrition benefits? They're high in fiber and B vitamins and have 60% more potassium than bananas.
  • The bumpy-skinned Hass avocado from California is by far the most common variety sold, and it's our favorite, too.
  • Avocado skin turns almost black when fully ripe. Buy fruit that is beginning to darken and just yields to gentle pressure. However, the flesh of over-ripe (or soft) avocados tends to be dark and too bruised for salads and guacamole.
  • Once your avocado reaches the perfect state of ripeness, refrigeration will halt the ripening process so they can be held for several days before use.
