The avocado has been labeled a ‘super food’ for a number of reasons. Not only is the fruit rich in B, V, and K vitamins, its loaded with potassium, heart-healthy monounsaturated fatty acids, and fiber.
Many studies have confirmed that eating avocados on a regular basis is not only beneficial for blood cholesterol but may help improve eye health and heal digestion. For these reasons and more, they’re definitely a fruit you should consider eating more frequently.
However, because it’s rare to find perfectly ripe avocados at the supermarket, we’re sharing a neat video that details how you can turn a rock-hard avocado into a soft, luscious one within minutes.
Keep in mind, avocados retain more nutrients when they’re raw and uncooked, but if you just can’t wait to dig into the smooth, green flesh, the following method of ‘ripening’ an unripe avocado is pretty genius.
You need to do the following:
-Wrap the avocado in tin foil.
-Cook the fruit for 10 minutes at 90 degrees Celsius or about 200 degrees Fahrenheit.
-Next, allow the avocado to chill in the fridge for another 10 minutes.
-And that’s it! Your avocado should be ready to eat!
