When choosing avocados at the store, don’t be fooled by the color as it’s not always the best indicator. Hold the avocado in your hand and gently squeeze with your palm--If it softens with a little pressure, it should be ripe and eaten within one to three days. If it doesn’t, leave it at room temperature and give it three to five days to ripen.
Pro tip #1 Choose your avocados at different stages of ripeness. This way you can eat one that same day and a few others throuhout the week as they soften to creamy goodness!
Pro tip #2 If you just can't wait and want your delicious avo to to ripen sooner, put it in a brown paper bag at room temp for 1-2 days.
