You know how you get a hankering for some great homemade guacamole so you go to the grocery story and all you can find are rock hard avocados that won't be ready to make guac for at least a few days? You end up buying store bought guac instead to satisfy that itch but you really wanted to make your own? I hate when that happens.
Well when these avocados arrived they were ripe and ready to go. They were sent at the peak of freshness. I was very excited. Unfortunately, I wasn't ready to go, so I put them in the fridge hoping to find time yesterday. I didn't and then today we flew up north to celebrate our great nephew's birthday so I didn't get to them again.
During the flight home I started worrying about those avocados. Don't pretend like you never worry about your fruit and veggies that are turning. I know I am not the only one... Anyway, I started worrying about the avocados which got me to thinking about what I do when I worry about other produce I have an abundance of....what if I were lucky enough to have an avocado tree in my back yard? What would I do with all of the avocados that need to be harvested at the same time? I would preserve them.
As soon as I got home, I cut open the avocados, removed them from the shells, discarded any dark spots and chopped up the flesh.
I placed the cubed flesh into a freezer bag and added the juice of 2 limes. Tossed the avocado so that the lime was distributed, removed the air from the freezer bag and sealed it. Into the freezer it went, now when I am ready to make my guacamole, my avocado will be all prepared and waiting to be tossed with my other ingredients.
As you can see, our tour starts on July 9th and runs through July 22nd. Each day a new blogger will be sharing a guacamole recipe that they created especially for this event. My recipe will be featured on July 13th. I think this event is going to be avocadelicious!!
