Local Avocado!

Could it be for anything else?

Yay, feels sooo gooood not to be the last to know of this. Dear young grasshoppers out there, blame the supermarkets. Why don’t they sell locally grown avocados AND the fruit is always in purple?
Got the fruit from a Rest and Service Area along the North South Expressway . Sorry but I cannot remember which one other than it was within Perak territory.

I would have missed it if not for the stall keeper’s gigantic sign. AVOCADO 1KG RM10. Being green (both fruit and me) and for that size, I am guilty of having mistaken it many times for mangoes. According to the jolly man, Perak produces 2 types. One forever green like this while another type turns purple when ripe.

Oooh I had mine in ecpc cold cream style. Try it.
  • Cut into halves.
  • Discard seed.
  • Scrape flesh into a fridge or freezer friendly container.
  • Add a desirable amount of honey.
  • Mix well until creamy.
  • Refrigerate or freeze. Consume when cold.

My effort maybe ugly but Y U M M Y !!

Note:-
The stall seller mentioned that an avocado a day keeps wrinkles away. Pity I forgot to ask for pictures of his wife and daughters (if any). He? He looks good for the age he claimed he is.

daphne, avocados are like durians? Not plucked but need to let it fall when ripe?
