In our new house we are so fortunate to have a large avocado tree in our back yard. I have been exploring ways to keep avocados longer so I can have a supply on hand for guacamole, sandwiches and salads.
I have determined the best way to keep them is to freeze them with a little lemon juice.
To freeze, mash the avocados with a fork. Add one teaspoon lime or lemon juice per avocado and mix well. Place the mashed avocados into a freeze-weight zip lock bag. Remove the air from the bag and then zip closed and freeze. Store for up to 2 months. Thaw the frozen avocados in the refrigerator.
