5 Things You Shouldn’t Do With an Avocado

Avocados are one of the rarest fruits that are versatile and delicious, but can be a little tricky if you’re not used to using them. Here are 5 things you shouldn’t do with an avocado if you want to make the most out of your experience.

5 Things You Shouldn’t Do With an Avocado

1. Don’t Refrigerate Your Avocados Until They’re Ripe: You’ll never want to store your fruits in the refrigerator until they’re ripe. These fruits will ripen the best when they’re out on your countertops and even faster when you put them in a brown paper bag. Once your avocados have ripened, you can store them in the refrigerator.

2. Don’t Remove the Pit With a Sharp Knife: To remove the pit of your avocado, you need to slice it in half around the pit. You’ll need to firmly smack the knife into the pit, then twist, and carefully remove the pit.

3. Don’t Avoid Using Lemon Juice: If you don’t eat your fruit right away, you may begin to notice it turns brown. To avoid turning brown, you should add lemon or lime juice to help preserve the color and enhance the taste.

4. Don’t Store Your Avocados Improperly: If you only plan to use half of your avocado, you should wrap the other half in plastic wrap, with the plastic wrap connecting to the cut end. After it’s been wrapped you can place it in a ziploc bag and store until ready to be eaten.

5. Don’t Juice Your Fruits: Even though avocados are a fruit, they’re one of rhe only fruits that you’ll want to avoid juicing. You may not be able to juice an avocado, but you could try to extract oils from it.

Let’s face it, there aren’t that many things that you shouldn’t do with an avocado, however, these are pretty important to note when you plan on using this delicious fruit.
