I absolutely LOVE avocados!
I was thrilled when I was chosen to do a review for Paradise Grove Avocados for August.
I was told I would be receiving a 6 lbs box of hand clipped avocados selected just for me. You can find out more about their selection and harvest process here.
Here is the box I received via USPS priority mail. It contained 9 pretty good size avocados.
They were green when I opened the box as I knew they would be. I just left them out on the table for a few days in the open box to allow them to ripen up somewhat. After a couple days I had been teased enough. I wanted to eat them. I took them out of the box and placed a couple into a paper bag to speed up their ripening a bit and the rest I put into the fridge for later recipes I will try.
I was surprised at how well the paper bag method worked to ripen these up. It was only the very next day and they were ready to eat. So of course I had to cut one up right away and munch away!
I made a Turkey Sammy with avocado. Simple but so delish!
Then this morning I had to have the other one I ripened up with breakfast!
I am telling ya... I love avocados!!!!
I could eat these things for every meal! As a matter of fact I almost do. I have slacked off a little in recent past because my grocery stores avocados haven't been as good as they should be. I don't know what they do with them or where they come from for that matter but they are never consistently good.
Which brings me to one thing I love about Paradise Grove Avocados, I know where they are coming from and how they are grown.
I plan to make some "Frog Dip" with my girls very soon and I will link it to this post when I get it done. I just have to wait for a trip to the store for a couple ingredients.
Hint: It does not included FROGS
