How to Ripen an Avocado in 10 Minutes

 

 

Before you start:

Here’s a short list of things you need: a baking sheet, some tinfoil and of course, an unripe avocado.

What to do:

1. Wrap the fruit in tinfoil and set it on the baking sheet.

2. Pop the avocado into the oven at 200°F for 10 minutes or until the avocado has softened. (Depending on how hard it is, it may take up to an hour to soften.)

3. Remove the avocado from the oven and put your now soft, ripe avocado in the fridge until it has cooled.

Why it works:

This quick method is effective at ripening an avocado, primarily because avocados produce ethylene gas, which is typically released slowly, causing the fruit to ripen. By wrapping the avocado in tinfoil, the gas surrounds it, speeding up the ripening process.

Next time you are at the store, avoid purchasing an unripe avocado by following the guide.
