Avocado on the Half Shell for Baby

Posted by 3 years ago 2 Comments

Confession: I’m not the biggest avocado fan. I simply don’t understand people that go gaga over guacamole? It’s green and weird and a weird green.

However, I must admit, after picking some up for Little Bean I’ve been giving them another chance. Especially now that I’m keeping some in stock for him….

“What’s on Special? Avocado? Ok, I’m game.”

But first a little appetizer.

This time we had a Florida Avocado. At least that’s what I think it is. Please correct me if I’m wrong.

Cut it in half and remove the seed.
The trick here is to pop the knife into the seed and then twist. This one fell right out.

Mash.
You could remove the flesh but the skin is fairly resilient. I used it as my bowl calling it “Avocado on the half shell.” One less bowl to wash is fine my me. :)

Store Leftovers.
Avocados will brown so I decided not to mash and store the second half. Instead I placed it in a ziplock bag, removing as much air as I could. This lasted for 2 days very well in my fridge.

    We always store our guacamole or left over avacado with the seed. I was told years ago that it keeps it from turning brown. It seems to work for us but we don't keep avacado around for a very long time....we LOVE it! Reply

    I always coat my left over avacado in lemon or lime juice! No brown this way but they never last long in my house either! Reply
