wat can i do with an unripe avocado?

i wanted to make guacamole… and this is my first time buying an avocado… and i bought an unripe one… :oops: i’ve cut it open… and now im juz wondering is there any thing i can do with it besides throwing it away?? it taste bitter…

and… how do i choose a good avocado??

Sorry I know of no uses for unripe avocado. If you have children you could try to ‘grow’ the stone. Push a tootpick into both sides. Put it wide side down in a glass container of water. Keep the water level just above the bottom of the stone. It should spout leaves from the top. Keep it in a warm spot.
In future if you have an uncut unripe avocado, place it in a brown paper bag with a banana and it will soon ripen.
To get a ripe avocado feel the top, near where it was attached. It shound give a little. If it gives too much it is over ripe. To cut an avocado. Cut it from the thin top down and around in a circle. Turn the halves to separate. If only using one half leave the stone in the unused half, this helps prevent it going brown.

Mix avacado with french toast mix (eggs) and prepare as usual doc25@localnet.com

put them in a paper bag with a banana on the counter. ask emeril, it works!

To keep an avocado from going brown in your refrigerator use a little lemon juice on it. Thia also works on guacamole…Enjoy!

Normally, I put any unripe fruit with a banana in a paperbag and it works wonders…but I never tried Avocado…I don’t see why it wouln’t work tho…

You can easily ripen this delicious fruit at home by placing them in a closed brown paper bag for 2-4 days.

Plan ahead if possible. You should buy your avocados at the local market a few days before you want to use them.

Guacamole is one of my favorite.

Where would you plant it after is sprouts? Does it grow like a tree?

I don’t know of anything you can do with it. Throw it away and plant the pip to grow a tree.

Not sure if you got answered…but once you’ve cut into it, it’s not very useful…
when you select one, if you’re going to use it right away, press gently on it…and if it’s soft or ‘gives’ just a little, it’s pretty good. if you buy one that’s not already kinda soft, put it in a closed up brown paper bag overnight. once you discern it’s soft enough to mash with a fork. then refrigerate it to keep it from getting too mushy.

you can plant the seed sprout in a pot…use good potting soil and a hole in the bottom. it will grow pretty quick. it’s a tree, and will get about 15-20’ tall. plant it on the south side of your home, in a kind of protected area, and maybe it won’t freeze in our houston winters…if you’re further north, good luck on that…maybe you’ll have to bring it inside so keep it in a pot…a big one!!

Youcan put an unripe, uncut avocado in flour to ripen it also. It’s kind of hard to tell a ripe avocado, they darken as they ripen and get smushier. So if it’s real smushy it’s too ripe but if it’s not hard then it should be just about right. Clear as mud huh? Lemon juice will help to keep it from turning brown but if it does, just scrape off the top and it’s still green underneath for a couple of days anyway.

Put it in the microwave for one to two minutes and it soffens straight away.[/b]

Put unripe avocado in microwave for 10 secs (at a time). I just read this somewhere last week and haven’t tried it as yet. Ripe ones the skin is turning black and are softer. Course too black and too soft is no good either.

The answer to the tree, is YES I 've grown 2 and they can get quite large, so top them at a reasonable hight.

They should just a little soft and the skin is usually blacker However,
you ripen them fast by
1 place in a brown bag
2. leave out on counter near sun

If you already cut it open add lemon and salt,pepper, garlic powder slice onto salad…

Always keep the seed also …it keeps the avocado from turning brown along with some lemon. :wink:

I chopped up the avocado and put it in my blender. I then added about 1/2 tsp lemon juice, 1/8 cup water, garlic salt, and pepper. Add another Tlbs. of water if it’s not smoothing out. In the end it’s not totally smooth but it will do:)

make some salsa with it just chop it up it will be fine

If I cut an avocado and found it not to be ripe enough, I would put it back together and tightly wrap it in plastic wrap and let it sit on the counter until it felt slightly soft to the touch.

Avocado is one of the most delicious things around
If they’re not ripe, ripen them in a brown paper bag then enjoy
In a salad, mashed and spread on crusty bread, Guacamole - deeeelicious
