how to ripen a rock hard avocado in just 10 minutes

Oh avocados…. who does not love them? Not only are they tasty, but their nutrition benefits prove even more of a reason to eat the green goodness. At home we are huge avocado fans. Avocados are perfect for babies, kids, and adults.

These days,the avocado has become an incredibly popular food among health conscious people. It is often referred to as a superfood, which is not surprising given its health properties. Learn more about the health benefits of avocado HERE. Mashed avocado was my daughter’s first baby food!

The problem is avocados are notoriously tricky to get just right. It is pretty hard to have avocados that are ready to eat everyday. When I go grocery shopping I buy my avocados rock hard. I need to wait a few days for them to be ready, but with this trick, I do not need to wait anymore. How To Ripen A Rock Hard Avocado In Just 10 Minutes is a great idea I got from this awesome parenting blog.

Here is an absolute foolproof trick: How To Ripen A Rock Hard Avocado In Just 10 Minutes:

What you need: A baking sheet, tinfoil and that hard-as-a-rock avocado

What you do: Wrap the whole fruit in tinfoil and set it on the baking sheet. Pop it in the oven at 200 degrees fahrenheit for ten minutes, or until the avocado is soft (depending on how hard it is, it could take up to an hour to soften). Remove it from the oven, then put your soft, ripe avocado into the fridge until it cools.

Why this works: Avocados produce ethylene gas, which is typically released slowly, causing the fruit to ripen. But as the avocado bakes in tinfoil, the gas surrounds it, putting the ripening process into hyperdrive.

Now that you know how to have avocados ready everyday, start incorporating them to your weekly menu. If you want to learn more avocado tricks, please see my 5 Useful Hacks Every Avocado Lover Needs To Know post and video.
