Avocados are a botanical berry of the avocado tree. They are high in monounsaturated fats and are a staple food in areas where other forms of fat are expensive or unaccessible. Avocados have a rich and creamy texture with a mild flavor that is fragrant and packed with umami.
Uses: Avocados should only be eaten when ripe. Leave them at room temperature until the fruit gives easily to light pressure and the stem falls away easily.
