    I went to restock on avocados yesterday. The M&S 'Perfectly Ripe' avos haven't been so good lately. They were just right a few weeks ago but now they aren't perfectly ripe. Quite hard and if I leave them out to ripen for a couple of days there are still some hard parts.
    So I bought some Waitrose perfectly ripe Hass avocados from Peru which are consistently good. I had one last night with just a little sprinkle of salt.

    Ours have a bit of give in them, but let go a couple more days and they are ok.

    We picked up a couple of bags of Awkwards , a mix of Hass and Shephards avo's. Just the right size for a couple of ham and salad sandwiches.

    Bring the avo thread back to life again

    We will have to put them back on the menu again, as we have not got any for while.

    Picked up a bag of Arkwards on Friday for $7.50, nearly ready to go into a sandwich.

    Now look...I know avos are very healthy and good fats for LCHF but am I the only one that finds them a bit slimey, tasteless and defo cant eat them on their own. I buy a few every week but I dont look forward to eating them. There I have said it!!!
    Before D I liked them in a sandwich with bacon or prawns but like bananas they must be perfect not hard and not too soft. Is it just me?

    I have never found our avo's to be slimy, most of our avo's here in Bundy are locally grown so they are always fresh. Same goes for the interstate avo's all good.
