To freeze avocados, puree with ascorbic acid added and package excluding oxygen. Will last a few months in the deep freeze.

This site may be of use to you - Home - Avocados Australia. Avocados are plugged here constantly - wonder food. We have tv adverts on in just about every free to air cooking show plus around meal times. Always showing a new recipe idea.

My tree doesn't produce many but people say they are nice. Unfortunately, I have a food intolerance to them -so annoying as I used to really enjoy eating them. Every other year or is it one in three, you get a shocking crop. If you don't prune, you get fruit the next year - well with the variety I have anyway. But then I ignore it anyway - and it is huge! 8 - 10 metres maybe??
Too many restaurants, not enough time...

I have an idea for a bread spread (like mayo) that would use avocados, yogurt cheese, and lime juice.

I am still building it in my head. I think it would rock on a burger.

My culinary daughter concocted a great recipe for Avocado Bread. (You know, instead of zucchini?)

My favorite summer sandwiches are made of sliced ripe heirloom tomatoes and avocadoes on multi-grain bread with homemade mayo.
Wine is the food that completes the meal.

on burgers, on deli sandwiches, in salads, make a green salsa and add a ripe one, use instead of half the sour cream with dip seasonings, great on a spicy grilled chicken....
