The Secret to Ripening an Avocado

Executive Chef Dana and her culinary team love incorporating fresh avocados in our recipes when the season is right.

Since you can’t un-ripen an avocado, we work hard with our suppliers to ensure that your avocados arrive perfectly ripe, or sometimes even a little under-ripe. To get your avocados ready for your delicious recipes, follow these chef secrets to ripen them.

1. Simply put your avocado in a brown paper bag. This will help it ripen faster.
2. If you have a bowl of fruit, put your avocado right in there. The gasses from the other fruits will ripen the avocado.

Here’s a dish coming up that incorporates yummy, creamy avocados:

Thai Veggie Pitas: Bok choy & mandarin salad, broccoli, avocado
