So I graduated from millennial school today and fried up my very first avocado, mainly due to raw ones just not tasting very good to me. I fried it up in vegetable oil and loaded it with salt, which would be super unhealthy if I wasn't eating keto. Sadly that means I can't have it on toast, but my hair is too short for a man bun anyway. Damn things are slimy and they look disgusting while you're mashing them. They're also a bitch to get the seed out sometimes and are just an unattractive looking fruit in general. But they taste pretty good once cooked.

You should try them ripe and uncooked. How God intended.

I dragged myself to Starbucks to get some work done (finally felt like I was not gonna die) and the girl next to me was putting avocado spread on her bagle. I thought it was just a meme.

I have, as I mentioned, I really don't like them at room temperature for some reason.

For the seed, just plop a knife into it and twist. It should come right out.

I used to only eat them mashed up with lime and onion and other stuff. But now I like to slice them up plain and eat as a side with my other meals.

Listen you can't get rid of the seed that is what contains all the power. You collect the seeds into a necklace that you wear, it will protect you from evil.

I never imagined that I would be so vehemently and diametrically opposed to someone on a subject as mundane as the preparation of an avocado.

Really. The picture in my mind of a disfigured avocado sitting in oil and salt is kind of gross. Avocados in their pure form are really pretty.

Yes, tried and true method right here.

I have to disagree.

In N out did a prank last year where they introduced the California Burger. It included bacon and avocado... I almost weeped when I saw it was fake.

In comparison to the original description of what you concocted in your home, this is beautiful and pure.

What is a food that you think is aesthetically pleasing? I would actually like to see your final product to compare.

Okay but when I opened the avocados they didn't look like food art like those ones.

How are you opening them?

If you cut once around the seed of the avocado it should come apart just like the photo. Then cut your slices and you can spoon them out.

You need to know how to shop for a ripe avocado vs an overly ripe avocado. Ones that are over-ripened look brown and kind of nasty.

gotta squeeze them and make sure they are firm.

Depends on what you want. If you want to eat them that day or really soon, you want there to be a little squish to them. Otherwise you can get them hard as a rock and let them sit on the counter for a few days and they will soften up and then be ready to eat.

To me the OP sounds like IKM is trying to fix them while they’re still green.

Posted May 14th by chiarizio

You don't even have to cut it deep, or at all -- I cut just the skin with my fingernail and it still makes the avocado pop apart into two pieces. Should be able to just pluck the seed out as well, unless the avocado is overripe.

Imo, underripe avocados taste a lot better -- but they're a bitch to spoon the pieces out. Overripe avocados are stringy, fall apart awkwardly and don't taste as good. Try to get some that are black and very mildly squishy -- like not so squishy that it's like guacamole in a skinsack, but more like you can press on them a bit and shift one of the layers around a bit.

Alternately, get them when they're unripe and then store them with a ripe banana -- they'll ripen ridiculously fast and even taste a bit like banana.
