Do you love avocados, but hate throwing out them out when they spoil? Learn about a food-saving hack that could keep those delicious, nutritious avocados fresh for months and help you save money!
The Doctors suggest freezing the avocado when it makes it to that "sweet spot" of just ripe enough. ER physician expert Dr. Travis Stork says to cut it in half, remove the pit, place the halves face down in a freezer bag, and then vacuum pack the bag in order to remove excess air. If you do not have a vacuum food-saver, he suggests using a straw to suck out the excess air from the bag.
When you are ready to eat it, simply allow the avocado to thaw in the refrigerator for 6 hours. Some say this method can help keep the avocado fresh (with no brown spots!) for up to 4 months. They also note the popular heart-healthy food is a great source of monounsaturated fatty acids, which can possibly reduce bad cholesterol and lower the risk of heart disease and stroke.
