Ripeness Information:

Avocados are ripe when they yield to gentle pressure when squeezed or pressed with the thumb.
Hass avocados show their ripeness not only by yielding to pressure, but also by changing color from green to purple-black.
Firm avocados will ripen on their own in your fruit bowl at room temperature, or you can speed the ripening process by storing them for a few days in a paper bag at room temperature or in a warm place.
Ripe avocados should ideally be eaten when ready but can be refrigerated until they are eaten to slow the ripening process.

Basic Preparation Information:

Cut the avocado in half, lengthwise around the seed.
Then rotate the two halves to separate.
To remove the seed, slide the tip of a spoon gently underneath and lift it out.
To peel the avocado half, place the cut side down on a cutting board and remove the skin with your fingers or a knife. The “meat” may also be removed without skinning. Simply spoon out or slice into small sections and “spill” out by inverting the avocado half.
Sprinkle all cut surfaces with lemon or lime juice to prevent discoloration. When making guacamole, also add lemon or lime juice to prevent discoloration and to enhance taste.
