Avocado, known as green gold, is one of the most consumed fruits in our country. This is due to its great flavor which makes it ideal to eat with tacos, salads and other meals.
Despite the fact that many of us are good at eating avocados, we are not always good at choosing this product at its “point”, neither ripe nor green. If this is your problem, do not forget that below we will give you three tips to cook avocado in a few steps and get results in minutes.
These processes will help you achieve a smooth and pleasant consistency on the palate as if it is fully ripe. Some of these processes require the use of heat for rapid ripening.
One of the tricks you can use to ripen green avocados is to use aluminum foil and a gas oven on your conventional stove. To do this, you must first wrap the avocados in aluminum foil and move them to an oven preheated to 180 degrees.
Avocados should remain at this temperature for at least 10 minutes. After this, take them out of the oven and wait for them to cool down. This way you will get the consistency of ripe avocado within minutes.
If you don’t have a gas oven, you can use your microwave or electric oven. The process is the same for using this trick, except you shouldn’t be using aluminum foil in this case.
Failing this, you should use a plastic container in which to place the avocado after piercing it with a fork so that it doesn’t break. After this you just have to keep them in the oven for about 5 to 10 minutes.
Another resource you can use to ripen avocados in your home is a fire in your stove.
To do this, all you have to do is pierce the avocados several times with a fork and wrap them in aluminum foil. After that you should put them in a saucepan with a lid which will create an oven effect which will transfer the avocados in 10 minutes.
