You can’t just walk in and pick up avocados like you do oranges or apples without some knowledge, beforehand.  There is a bit of an art to choosing ripe avocados and there is a small window of opportunity when you can use them.  How to choose & prep avocados that are perfectly ripe is a bit of an art.  Get great tips on prep, method & ingredients for making (& storing) the best guacamole ever! Our family thought we hated guac… until we tried these tips & methods!  It was just the green stuff that sat on the side of our plate.  But, now, it’s an addiction & we get the green stuff cravings!  🥑
