My brother sent me an email yesterday taunting me with a picture of all the avocados he harvested from his tree in their backyard. So far they have picked 22 avocados with at least as many more still on the tree.
Did I mention that he lives in San Diago? I'm hoping they'll freeze the leftovers so the next time we're visiting we can try them.
To make matters even more tortuous, he also has a lemon tree. All the better for helping preserve the avocados with the lemon juice!
For those of you down south lucky enough to have a productive avocado tree, don't let your surplus go to waste. You can preserve the flesh easily by pureeing it and adding one tablespoon of lemon juice per two avocados. It will last in the freezer for at least 5 months, probably longer if you remove all the air first.
