Avocado Recipes

Avocados are well known for their “healthy” fat, but did you know that half of an avocado contains more potassium than two bananas? 

Choose avocados with firm skin and no soft spots that are firm but yielding to gentle pressure when ripe. Store unripe avocados in a paper bag at room temperature, but refrigerate when ripe for 2-3 days. The most common varieties are Hass, Fuerte, Gwen, Pinkerton, Reed, and Zutano.
