I had a huge supply of avocados recently after Gisborne hit very high temperatures and some local trees decided to drop a lot of fruit. I decided to give freezing avocado a go as there was no way we'd get through what we had collected.
Did you know that the mashed avocado you might have at fast food chains is usually frozen? It's certainly a great option as you can do this when avocados are in season / much cheaper in price and have avocado all year round. We love guacamole as a snack with carrot, cucumber, celery and capsicum so that's what I decided to make with most of the avocado (I also made a delicious chocolate ganache too which I'll share another time).
Freezing in glass jars is pretty fool proof if you follow a few simple tips:
Double, triple or quadruple this recipe as needed
2 ripe avocados
2 Tblsp of lemon or lime juice (or more to taste) + extra for on top of the guacamole
Pinch of ground cumin (optional)
Salt and pepper to taste
Give your avocados a quick wash before cutting open. Remove the flesh and discard any rotten or bruised bits from the flesh. Mash in a bowl then add the lemon juice, cumin, salt and pepper (adjust to suit your taste buds).
Transfer to a freezer safe glass jar and try to remove any air pockets by pressing the avocado down into the jar. Add a small squeeze of lemon juice to the top to help stop browning on the surface which is the most exposed to air. Add the lid, label then place into the freezer.
When it comes time to use the guacamole, remove from the freezer and, once thawed, you can eat it as is or add chopped coriander, tomato or any other herbs or vegetables.
This will last in the freezer for at least 6 months.
