Florida is an amazing place. The tree shown above is in my front yard. Can you tell what kind it is? It's an avocado tree and they are in season now (click to enlarge, escape to return).
There's nothing better than watching the NFL on Sunday except watching the games with guacamole, yum.
The guy across the street has a gizmo he uses to pick the avacados. They just fall off the tree, however, and I just wait, then pick them up. Generally I let them sit out for a few days to ripen, then put them in the fridge. Maybe you can tell from the photo above, they are like the ones in the store, but twice as big (that's a quarter for reference).
You don't peel the avocados, but rather cut them in half, remove the pit, score them, then scoop out the meat.
Guacamole can be made with lots of different stuff. Above shows what I added.
Take the above mixture and add all the goodies, take a fork and mash and mix. I like mine chunky, but you can blend it until smooth -- it's up to you. Then cover and put in the fridge. The flavors will blend making it yummy. When the games start, use as a dip with tortilla chips.
I watch carbs. Avacados are excellent in that regard. It's considered one of natures most healthful foods (see here). Read more about avacados here.
