When it comes to buying avocados you want to get them when they are just ripe. Whether you eat avocado on its own, in a salad or with an avocado fries recipe baked it's always a good addition to your day. Avocado nutrients you will find in avocados include B vitamins and vitamin K and dietary fiber, with amounts of vitamin C and vitamin E, and lesser amounts of iron and calcium. Avocados that are too hard will need to be further ripened which can be done on a countertop, and for avocados that are already ripe and ready to eat, you can place them in the refrigerator until they are ready to use. Hass avocados do not ripen on the tree; they ripen after they have been harvested. Hass avocados are unique from other varieties of avocados because they can change from a dark-green color to a deep purplish almost black hue when they are ripe. Indicators of an avocado's ripeness are color and feel.

To determine if an avocado is ready to place it in the palm of your hand. Then gently squeeze it without applying your fingertips as this may cause bruising and feel. If the avocado yields to firm yet gentle pressure you know it's ripe and ready-to-eat. If the avocado does not yield to gentle pressure, then it needs more time to ripen, possibly a couple of days. If an avocado is mushy or very soft than it may be overripe, and when you peel it you may find it has many blackened areas inside. If that is the case you may not want to use it as the flavour is generally not as nice. Thank you to Heidi at "Foodie Crush" for sharing this recipe for avocado and tomato salad.
