Too early, too late, just right? We want your best tip for choosing ripe avocados

Share your secrets and you could win a €50 voucher towards your next Big Shop.

AVOCADOS ARE THE simplest food of all, right? They’re delicious, compact, portable, and you can eat them with a spoon right out of the wrapper (eh, the skin).

But there’s one problem: eat them too early, and they’re like small green rocks. A fraction of a second too late, and they’ve turned to stringy mush. So what’s the secret to choosing a good ‘un?

As part of TheJournal.ie‘s brand new Lidl Food Magazine, each week we’ll be asking our readers to share their cooking tips, kitchen hacks and go-to-dishes. From the secret to great roast potatoes to the best burger toppings, we’ll have a new question every seven days.

This week, we’re asking…

What’s your secret for choosing ripe avocados?

Simply comment below or email food@thejournal.ie to tell us your hack and why it works.

You could see your response in the next issue of the Lidl Food Magazine – and the best response this week will win a €50 Lidl voucher. Perfect for your next Big Shop.

Want to be included every week?

We’re building a panel of home cooks and foodies right now from our readers to answer our weekly question and share their kitchen hacks. If you’re interested (and fancy the chance to win a few prizes from Lidl along the way), send us a mail on food@thejournal.ie with ‘Home Cooks Panel’ in the subject line. Be sure to include:

  • Your name
  • Your contact details
  • What kind of foods you like cooking best
