ONE WOMEN shared a simple trick for softening avocados that are too hard to eat – and all you need is a paper bag.
Veronica Cannady, 31, from New York, came up with a hack that involves simply placing the fruit in a brown bag and storing it in a dark place for two days.
Veronica told Jam Press: “I hated waiting for the butter to soften and knew there had to be a better way.
“Avocados have a hormone called ethylene, which is present in the fruit and triggers them to ripen.
“Putting butter in a brown bag causes that ethylene to be trapped.
“You put the avocado in a paper bag and put it in a dark place – preferably the oven or the microwave.
“I love it – no more waiting weeks for a ripe avocado.”
She shared the tip on TikTok, filming herself going through the steps to achieve a perfectly ripe avocado and banana, with the clip garnering 13,000 views and more than 1,200 likes.
After leaving the fruit covered and in the oven for two days, she mashed it in a bowl – revealing a perfectly ripe avocado.
Veronica previously went viral for its “must try” tip that helps keep avocados fresher for longer.
To demonstrate how it works in a TikTok video, she dips half of the leftover avocado – still with the seeds – in a cup of water and refrigerated.
“So ever since I learned from TikTok that you can put avocados in water and put them in the fridge to preserve them and keep them from turning brown, I haven’t stopped doing it,” she said. . Definitely recommend. ”
Veronica claims this helps prevent the fruit from turning brown before she has a chance to eat it.
She found that avocados can be stored for two days and remain perfectly fresh.
After sharing the clip on TikTok, the video garnered more than 780,000 likes and was viewed 10 million times – with viewers calling it a “must-try” trick.
