Here’s How To Ripen An Avocado In Just 10 Minutes

You might have heard about this handy hack along the grapevine already but, if not, you do not want to miss out on this juicy bit of knowledge.

We have all experienced the struggle at some point of buying a supposedly ‘ripe’ bag of avos to later find out they are rock solid. There goes that perfect batch of guacamole you had been dreaming about all day. Well, not anymore!


Never again will you experience this struggle because you can now ripen your hard avocado in just 10 minutes.

The method is pretty simple. Apparently, all you need to do is tightly wrap your avocado in foil, and bake for 10 minutes in a 93°C or 200°F oven.

We were slightly sceptical about this supposedly miracle cure to unripe avos, but the Buzzfeed team have tried and tested the technique and to our delight they have given it the thumbs up.


In the image above you can see what the end result looks like and apart from being slightly warm around the edges it is ready to eat.

So, next time you are craving avocado and you don’t have a ripe one in the house – do not fear, just try out this super awesome trick.
