You expect that by the time you prepare the recipe, the avocados are now ready to eat.

To your great surprise, the avocados are just as green as in the supermarket and are as hard as stone.

When you see that the ripening process of the avocado is not going fast enough, you can put it in a fruit bowl with bananas a few days before you need the avocado.

Bananas excrete a substance that speeds up the ripening process of other types of fruit, including the avocado.

Be careful with this, because before you know it, the ripening process is too fast and the avocado will rot.

How do you know if an avocado is ripe?

A ripe avocado can be recognized because it is light brown in color and you must be able to press it gently.

Another good way to see if an avocado is ripe — is to look at the crown.

If the crown is very tight, then the avocado is not yet ripe.

When the crown and easy to get out and the layer underneath is clear and lightly brown, then it is perfect.

If the layer under the crown is shriveled, then the avocado is probably overripe.

When you cut open an avocado and you are not entirely sure whether the avocado is ripe, you can tap the kernel with a sharp knife (with the sharp side).

Make sure the blade is a little bit in the pit.

If you then raise the knife, the wick should come out easily.

If it remains stuck, the avocado is not yet fully ripe.

Use this method as a final check.

You can see for yourself if an avocado is overripe when you cut it open and brown pieces are visible.

You can cut these brown pieces away, but you still prefer a ripe avocado for that delicious recipe.
