Has anybody else noticed a decline in the quality of your average store-bought avocados lately? Maybe it's just what's available around here (NYC)that's the problem.

I have noticed that more of them are coming from Mexico than California these days. You'd think the local Mexican bodegas would have great ones, but most often they're ripe if not overripe -- use the day you buy.

I wonder if refrigeration is an issue. Some stores keep them cold at least some of the time.

It used to be easy to pick a good one by look and feel. These days the old cues aren't working. A good-looking prospect can have hard spots, brown spots or pure mush somewhere in the texture.

I've started buying them harder than I used to, in hopes of fewer problems. It helps some.

THIS is a national emergency! I'm serious. I love my avocados. Actually, living in California, we have a pretty good supply of them. I find, in general, the ones from the better (and more expensive) stores are ... better.

Is avacoado bread an option.?

(Penny, this is my contibution to the "nanner bread" thread.)

(I didn't know if I should put a "rolleye" smiley after the fist sentence or not, for although I've never heard of it, there are a lot of Californians and other strange ethnic groups on this forum for whom it may be standard fare. :rolleyes:

Avocado bread recipe


Avocado bread is a loaf pan bread that is made with fresh avocado. Though it sounds odd, avocado bread is moist and delicious in flavor. Akin to banana or zucchini bread, this loaf can be served with brunch or as a dessert.


To make your own avocado bread, begin by preheating your oven to 350 degrees. Be sure to generously grease a 9 x 5 inch loaf pan. Then, prepare the following ingredients:



1 Small Avocado, peeled, pitted, and mashed (approximately 1/2 Cup)

1 Egg

1/2 Cup Buttermilk

1/3 Cup Vegetable Oil

2 Cups Flour

3/4 Cup Sugar

1/2 Teaspoon Baking Soda

1/2 Teaspoon Baking Powder

1/4 Teaspoon Salt

3/4 Cup Chopped Pecans


In a medium bowl, with an electric mixer or using a food processor with a metal blade, mix the egg, mashed avocado, buttermilk, and oil. Add flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and pecans. Mix until well blended but do not over mix.


Pour the batter into the loaf pan and bake at 350 degrees for 55 to 60 minutes. To be certain the avocado bread is fully baked, a toothpick inserted into the center of the bread should come out clean. Cool the bread for 10 minutes and then carefully turn it out of the pan.


Cut into 1/2-inch slices and serve with butter, cream cheese, or jam. Avocado bread tastes great plain and may be frozen and reheated.

I like to take an avacado, cut it in half and pour worcestershire sauce in the hole left by the pit then eat it with a spoon.

Being a vegetarian, I do avocado sandwiches:

Toasted whole-grain bread with sliced:
red onion
avocado
tomato
seasoned tofu or mushrooms

It's my favorite lunchtime thing.

Cheese would be good on a sandwich like this, too.

I make guacamole by chopping up avacado with onion, garlic, a little green chile and salt. I like to eat it on corn tortilla chips.
