Freezing Avocados

Question per freezing avocados…

Absolutely! Freezing avocados is brilliant! Now granted, something happens to the texture when frozen, so I would recommend using the previously frozen avocados for guacamole, but being that they are so expensive and spoil relatively quickly - yes! Freeze!

Per freezing - either freeze them cut in 1/2 (removing skin before freeze and place avocado in ziplock bag) or freeze as a puree - can either smash the avocado with a fork or use your food processor to chop fine. Squeeze a few drops of lemon on either (1/2 or puree) version - it will prevent it from oxidizing and turning brown…

Lastly - in terms of freezing - consider portion sizes when rethawing… smaller portions when divided into the ziplock bag will help in extending the life of frozen avocado (so you don't have to thaw huge quantities at once!)

Love y'all dearly!
