I wish I had stumbled on this tip from Kate Sims of the blog hustle + glow a little sooner. She says that she experimented with freezing ripe avocados two ways: one peeled and quartered, and the other mashed with a little bit of lemon juice. Both versions were placed in plastic freezer bags and frozen for several days. When she was ready to use them she simple defrosted them in a bowl of cold water and "they returned to their rich and creamy state."
Unfortunately, my avocado stash is gone (eaten up or given away), but I can't wait to try this in my own kitchen. It can be a real challenge when an avocado is ripe but I don't have the time to eat it or when I buy more than one and they all ripen at once. If freezing them is an option without any noticeable change in flavor or texture, then I would be thrilled!
How about you? Have you ever frozen avocados? What happened when you did?
