Food How to Be Sure Your Avocado's Ripe
An Indonesian Company Invented a Mango Avocado
<p>The fruit hybrid looks like an avocado and eats like a mango, sort of</p>The avocado will inevitably go down as one of the defining foods of 2017. But just because we’ve turned the calendar over to a new year doesn’t mean that the fatty stone fruit’s complete domination of our culinary consciousness will slow down anytime soon.
If you purchase avocados, you probably know the proper technique for checking for ripeness. Give the flesh a soft squeeze, and it should yield to moderate pressure.
However, sometimes a soft avocado is actually bruised. Since there's nothing more disappointing than slicing into a browned avocado, I've got another way of testing for ripeness. Flick the small brown stem off the top of the avocado. If it comes off easily and you can see green underneath it, the avocado is ripe! If you see brown, the avocado is overripe and will have some browned spots. If the stem doesn't come off, it's not ripe yet.
A Quicker-Than-Quick Bread Way to Use Up Bananas
<p>It’s easy enough to freeze old bananas and save them for the weekend when I have more time to bake, but sometimes I'd rather just mash them up and turn them into a quick after-dinner snack.</p>I got the recipe for these banana fritters from my grandma. My grandpa had a good appetite, and after dinner, he often felt like he needed something extra. Gran would reach for browning bananas and whip up a batch of banana fritters, making quick work of mashing bananas, mixing in some flour, milk, and eggs, and frying up a warm, satisfying, banana-y treat.

Please Stop Cooking Your Avocados .
<p>Avocados should not be cooked! Seriously, people, the madness has got to stop</p>I must admit that even I have fallen into the trap of cooking perfectly good avocados. My friend has an overly abundant avocado tree and sent me home with a basket of them one day. I never grew tired of eating them in guac, on toast or sliced over salads, but considering I had so many, I thought I might experiment. I put some chopped avocado into a batch of enchiladas, excited to see how their creaminess would add to the dish. So imagine my surprise and disappointment when I took my first bite, my tongue immediately recoiling at the slimy green avocado within.
