Storage

Ripen fruit at room temperature then store in the fridge once ripe.

Bring back to room temperature before eating for an improved flavour.

Instructions

Ripening of Avocados:
To test if an avocado is ripe, gently, squeeze the fruit in the palm of your hand.

Ripe, ready-to-eat fruit will be firm but will yield to gentle pressure.
Ripe avocados will keep for 2-3 days, store them in the fridge to prevent over-ripening.

To accelerate ripening, place avocados in the fruit bowl alongside other fruit or, better still, put them into a paper bag with a banana or a kiwifruit.
The ethylene gas released by the other fruit will stimulate the avocados to ripen more quickly.

How to Prepare an Avocado:
1. Cut all the way around the avocado stone.
2. Twist the 2 halves of the avocado apart.
3. Use a spoon to scoop out the stone.
4. Score along the skin and peel off in strips.

yuck

Don't make the same mistake and ignore the other bad reviews like I did. These avocados are really horrible. I left them out of the fridge to ripen but they remained rubbery and horrid. Total waste of money

Rating: 1 star out of 5

inedible

Never ripened, couldn't eat them, hard and waxy

Rating: 1 star out of 5

Bought twice never again

After the first bad purchase I gave ocado the benefit of the doubt and so bought again. Again all 4 were over ripe on day of delivery and one was even black. Ocado was very good returning my money but I would not buy these again. Great shame

Rating: 2 star out of 5

Tiny and not tasty.

These were very small, ripened very slowly, then even when ripe were not tasty. I should have trusted other reviews and not bothered.

Rating: 1 star out of 5

not ripe or tasty after a week

Not worth it. Waitrose version is much better.

Prawn Cocktail–style Wraps with Avocado and Red Pepper Mayonnaise

Cook's Note To cut up a pepper with minimum effort, slice the top and bottom off, then cut a lengthways slit in one side – you can now “unroll” the pepper, and simply slice away the seeds and membrane. Cut the flesh into fine slices, then dice. Variation Add some chopped fresh mango to jazz things up a little.

Cook's Note Slightly bitter leaves such as curly endive are perfect for this salad. Try to buy salad leaves loose, rather than already packaged in bags, as they will keep for far longer.

Avocado and Cucumber Soup

Avocado and Cucumber Soup

Use really ripe avocados to give this soup a rich green colour. If you want to take it a step further, add some cooked lobster or flaky crabmeat, or perhaps one or two Dublin Bay prawns, to the garnish. The perfect cooling starter, this soup can also be served as a light summer lunch with a crusty baguette.
