Well, I was so relieved that I tried this recipe. Baked Eggs in Avocado are delicious and become one of our ‘go to’ recipes.

Avocado Facts

Native to the tropics and subtropics, this rich fruit is known for its lush, buttery texture. The fruit’s name comes from abuacati, the Nahuatl word for “testicle.” Which I guess is in reference to the avocados shape. In the 1830’s, Florida was the site of some of the first avocado trees. Today’s crop though, almost 80%, comes from California. Avocados were once called the ‘alligator pear.’

The two most widely marketed avocado varieties are the pebbly textured, almost black Hass and the green Fuerte. The Fuerte has a thin, smooth skin. There are even tiny Fuerte cocktail avocados called avocaditos. They are about the size of a small gherkin. Like many fruits, avocados ripen best off the tree. Choose avocados that are firm to the touch. Bring them home and let ripen on a sunny window until slightly soft to the touch.

Guacamole

Avocados are delicious on sandwiches, in salads, as avocado toast or eaten plain with a sprinkling of sea salt, cracked fresh pepper and a drizzle of olive oil. And of course we can’t forget everyone’s favorite way to eat avocados and that’s in guacamole. I have enjoyed many a strawberry margarita and bowls of guacamole with homemade tortilla chips at Serigo’s Mexican Restaurant in the 1980’s. They had the best Mexican food in the Fox Valley at that time.
