Tip: If your avocados aren't quite ripe enough to eat, place them in a brown paper bag with another fruit like bananas or apples. Leave the bag near a sunny window for one day to allow the fruit gasses to quickly ripen the avocado. Check periodically for ripe-ness and place in the fridge when ready to eat.
