Tip to keep the avocado
Sometimes we buy commercial avocado that are not yet ripe and are hard as wood. To make them very tender, simply wrap them in newspaper and put them in a cabinet away from light. After two or three days, you will find your ripe and tasty avocados the way you like them, while keeping their flesh intact.
