Ripen an Avocado Quickly

I don't know about you, but I think Avocado goes well with just about anything and is even delicious alone.

Has this ever happened to you... You're planning a meal or simply just having a craving for an Avocado, so you go to the store only to discover they are all as hard as a rock!! Well, I have a solution!

What you will need:
1 Avocado, try to find the softest one you can
1 Apple (any kind)
A brown paper bag OR newspaper

Place the Avocado & apple together & wrap them up tightly in the paper bag or newspaper, store in a dark cool place like the corner of your counter. Let it sit & before you know it, the Avocado will begin to soften.

Ripe avocados will peel easily and are soft, yet still firm and not squishy.

 It is best to do this early in the day and by evening, you will notice it has softened up.  It may not happen in one day but this technique does speed up the process.
