How do I ripen avocados?

How do I ripen avacados? They are still pretty hard but I need them ready by Saturday morning.

Dont worry about it.

Avacados ripen very fast if left out on your counter top.I have also heard of placeing them in a paper bag to facilitate this process.You have 48 hrs plus to get this done.And in an avacados life span this is mearly a blip.

Put them in a paper bag with a banana..This should do it..Several days in a bag on top of the refrigerator should also do the trick.

Apples give off a gas that makes other veggies and fruit ripen faster. Try sticking it on a pile of apples.

What Alix said, but put the apples and the avocados in a paper bag and fold the bag over to lightly seal it up. That should do the trick.

Not in Minnesota, they won't. They come here so green and hard that it takes a week or so to ripen in the fridge or more, and then some of them will go bad too.

The fastes and the sure way to do it is to put into the brown bag and put the bag on the top of the fridge. The wormest spot in your house.

I keep them on the stove. I hear the gas helps them along.

no they won't ripen in the fridge - put them there only after they are ripe to keep a little while.

Ethylene gas produced from red apples while both fruits are in a paper bag will always work!
