    When the avocados are scarce...

    I've really gotten into the habit of eating an avocado per day/ half at lunch/half at dinner. I don't need oil, because I have avocado! I don't need salad dressing, because my big-ass salad has avocado! What the hell am I going to do when the avocados aren't in season for me and cost $2 per avocado? I wish I lived in Cali and had an avocado tree...

    You could come visit me. Guacamole is one of the four food groups in SoCal.

    Yeah. Lived in San Diego for a year with tree in backyard. I generally get them cheap at the Sacramento co-op now. Other stores, gotta stock up when there's a big sports event.

    Try $2.99 per.

    To be fair I can get them for less by buying bags of five.

    I love them too; they're a buck a pc now at Kroger.. We'll just have to use the oil when they start going up.

    I found this:
    Q: Can avocados be frozen?
    A: Yes, pureed avocados freeze very well and can be used in salads, sandwiches and dips.
    For directions, visit Preparation Tips and Techniques.

    May not be ideal, but could help get you through the winter months.

    When I can't find avocados I buy Wholly Guacamole, its ingredients are:
    Hass Avocados, Jalapeno Puree (white vinegar, jalapeno peppers, salt), Dehydrated Onion, Salt, Granulated Garlic.

    I don't think I have ever had to buy an avocado. I'd have an ocean view if it wasn't for all these dang avocado trees. Just thought I would rub it in.
