How To Select Ripe Avocados For The Recipe?
As avocados are one of the main ingredients in the recipe, they must be ripe for the perfect taste and flavour. So, let’s look at some tips for picking ripe avocados.
Notice The Colour
If you want to use the avocados a few days after purchasing them, pick the ones green in colour as they are not so ripe. On the contrary, if you are buying them for immediate use, go with the dark-coloured ones, which are almost black.
Squeeze To Test
If you squeeze an avocado and it feels mushy and soft, it indicates that the avocado is overripe. If the avocado is hard, it will take a few days to ripen properly. A perfectly ripe avocado is neither too hard, nor too soft.
Check The Stem
Another way of checking if an avocado is ripe or not is by checking its stem. Remove a small part of the stem from the top of the fruit. If the inside colour is green, it is in the perfect state. Whereas the brown colour inside of avocado indicates that it is over ripe.
