If you feel that all the avocados ripen at the same time and you don't have time to use them all, freeze some for later use.
Avocados keep well in the freezer for 3-6 months.
Before use, thaw the avocados and use them like a fresh avocado. For example, the guacamole pictured below is made from frozen avocados; I didn't notice any difference in the texture, color or taste of the guacamole, even though I used avocados that had been in the freezer for up to 6 months. The avocados were still beautifully green.
Preparing the avocado before freezing
Good news: there's really not much prep to avocados before freezing. All you have to do is remove the stone from the avocado, chop or slice the flesh as you like, and finally remove the peel.
I tried sprinkling some of the avocados with lemon juice before freezing, as I wasn't sure if the avocado would darken in the freezer. However, as you can see, there is no difference in the end result, so it is absolutely pointless to treat them with lemon juice.
Avocado slicing tips
If you want to cut the avocado into nice slices, you should do it before you remove the pulp from the skin. Remove the stone and slice the pulp with a sharp knife as you like - because the pulp is inside the skin, you can cut very thin and evenly beautiful slices without tearing or denting the pulp.
Tip: Instead of slicing, you can also dice the avocado. The only limit here is your imagination!
After slicing, use a large tablespoon to scoop out the entire flesh from inside the skin.
Freezing and thawing
Transfer the avocado slices to the freezer. If you freeze a large amount of avocados at once, I recommend placing the slices in the freezer in layers, placing a small piece of parchment paper between each layer. You can later use only some of the avocado slices and leave the rest in the freezer.
Defrosting avocados is easy with the microwave's defrosting power, and it only takes a few minutes per avocado.Tulosta
