Too hard or over-ripe, choosing an avocado or storing it so it is ready at the perfect time can be quite a challenge.

There is nothing worse than slicing into an avocado to find out it has to go in the bin.

3 easy steps to have avocados ready
when you need them

1. Just slice your avocado open, remove the stone and cut into slices, chunks, halves or quarters.

2. Line your avocados up on a tray, brush with a little lemon juice and then pop in the freezer for a few hours or overnight.

3. Once frozen, lift with a spatula and pop them in a bag.

Now you have perfect avocado portions, ready for when you need them.
