Avocado + Paper Bag + Banana

That's how to ripen an avocado.

I knew about putting an avocado in a paper bag to ripen, but that didn't always seem to work, and I'd never heard about adding a banana. My friend told me about this missing "ingredient", so I added a banana to the bag and sure enough, my rock hard avocados were ready to eat in just 2-3 days.

Just a little tip I felt compelled to jump on and write about.

This fascinates and delights me. It makes me want to imagine some sort of avacado psychology to the whole thing. Is it a sense of competition? Is it a desire to impress the banana? Does it feel somehow threatened, stuck in a dark bag with a banana? ;P

Glad to see you around, even if it's sporadic!

LOL! You crack me up! I had not considered all those possibilities. I think you may be on to something...
