Avocado Alert: Don’t let it spoil! April 3, 2015
Avocados go with EVERYTHING! Spruce up breakfast, have it on its own, blend and hide in desserts…the list goes on and on. They’re versatile, healthy, and full of nutritional benefits. The only thing not so amazing about them? They seem to have a 1-day shelf life. There’s nothing worse than planning a meal around an ingredient and coming home after a long day to find that it’s gone bad and is unusable. Sometimes HelloFresh provides ingredients that we won’t use all of- so you should be able to store the extra to cook another day. Wouldn’t that be great if you could preserve it long enough to cook on YOUR schedule?
We absolutely hate how quickly avocado spoils, so we used our in-house resource to determine a way to extend their lifespans. Our chefs were generous enough to share this awesome tip that REALLY works! Just store the avocado by placing the half with the pit in it in an air tight container with some chopped onion. It will stay green for 3-5 days! The only thing that will keep it from lasting that long? Our cravings!
Give it a go, and let us know if you’ve got some other tips for keeping food fresh.
