An avocado tree is a must in the new system! My parents had one when I was a kid and I love avocado. They are $3.50 at the shops here at the moment! :o

 

Love it on sourdough toast, mashed with a bit of feta, squeeze of lemon juice and topped with arugula (referred to as rocket here) and a drizzle of olive oil. Yum!

 

Does anyone else here dislike it cooked? I love the idea of it but then I order a dish with it in and I'm always disappointed as it tastes bitter:(

I've been getting avocado for a dollar each. Glad because I eat it 5 times a week, now that I can. I'm still putting it in salad, with my sprouts and tomato,  on a burger patty with bacon (!)  Along side a stirfry. Or just plain with pink salt.  It sure is an appetite suppressant . 

I think cooking it would bring out the bitter taste too.

Well, I've never tried cooking it though I have seen online recipes of that nature. As for me, I like it just the way it is--raw! I put it in my salads, make an avocado, cucumber and tomato sanwhich, as a hummus dish or rounded in a tortilla.

 

The possibilities are endless. :)

I have a little avocado story.......

The first avocado I ever ate was in homemaking class, I was 18 years old. Our teacher said these avocados came from the tree in her next door neighbors yard. 

16 years later I married the man who bought the house with that very same avocado tree!!

These days our tree doesn't bear too well anymore, it's getting old....

We have a restaurant in a town about an hour away that has on it's menu "fried guacamole balls"!  They roll quacamole in panko or some kind of breading and fry it!  it's very popular but I've never tried it.  Recently I had the "avocado egg rolls" from the Cheesecake factory with a sweet cilantro dipping sauce and they were AWESOME!  Warm avacado's are delicious!  I'm going to search for a knock off recipe!

LOL!  Actually the fried quac balls come from a place called "Evil Chech Brewery"!  I found this knock off recipe for the avocado eggrolls and cilantro dipping sauce from the cheesecake factory that I'm definitely going to try as soon as I can afford to buy the saffron for the sauce! haha!

Yes, the Cheesecake Factory really does exist (mostly in bigger towns like Chicago and Indy), the one I went too was a lot nicer than the one Penny worked at!

This compound is oil – soluble and structurally is similar to a fatty acid, and it leaches into the body of the fruit from the pits. Negative effects in humans seem to be primarily in allergic individuals.

There are two main forms of allergy reactions:   first ones are manifested with tree – pollen allergy, that develops local symptoms in the mouth and throat shortly after eating avocado. The second group is known as latex – fruit syndrome and is related to latex allergy and symptoms.

We made some avocado ice cream the other day. It was pretty easy, we just blended in the blender three avocados, 1.5 cups coconut milk, 3/4 cup sugar and 2 tbsp of lime/lemon juice. Then we froze it in a bowl for many hours. It tastes more like coconut than avocado, and you really don't need to eat a lot as it's very dense and filling.

 

This was Pati Jinich's recipe. She has a video on YouTube.

Can't wait to grind up a seed and use in smoothie! Stay tuned! I need to research if I am to use only grind a fresh seed or let dry out.
