I picked up a bunch of avocados the other day and I’m wondering if I can freeze them. This is the advise from the National Centre for home food preservation. I’ll use my sous vide bags when freezing hopefully that will help the preservation. I’ll let you know how I make out!

Preparation – Select avocados that yield to gentle pressure with rinds free from dark blemishes. Peel fruit, cut in half and remove pit.

Avocados are best frozen as purée – unsweetened for salads and sandwiches, sweetened for other uses. Avocados are not satisfactorily frozen whole or sliced. For a better quality product, add 1/4 teaspoon (750 mg) ascorbic acid to each quart of purée or add 1 tablespoon lemon juice for each 2 avocados.Pack into container, leaving headspace. Seal and freeze.
