Money Saving Tips: Ripen Hard Avocados
Have you ever noticed that almost every time you find avocados on sale at the store they are rock hard?
You know they’ll eventually ripen so you don’t mind picking up a few, but wouldn’t it be nice to use them right away?
Here’s a trick to quickly ripen your avocados so you don’t have to wait so long before you can eat them. The good thing is you can ripen as many or as little as you want at a time!
Just place your avocados in a brown paper bag [get one at the store when you buy them] with a banana, fold the bag over, and check it in a day to see how soft the avocados have gotten.
After being picked, bananas and other plants give off a gas called ethylene. The bag traps the gas and that’s causes the avocados to ripen fast!
