Avocado features in many different modern recipes. But it doesn't always arrive well-ripened in stores. Avocados are grown in tropical areas, which necessitates their delivery in a not yet ready-to-eat state.

Good ripe avocado is soft and cuts and peels very easily. Unripe avocados are hard and have a bitter taste, making them unfit for consumption.

When you buy an avocado from the store, in most cases it is hard and needs to be ripened. It's a good idea to wait a few days to a week before cutting it open. But you don't always have that kind of time. Sometimes you have to cook something with avocado right away, especially if you are expecting guests and you have a delicious recipe in mind.

How to make avocados ripen faster when you don't have a few days?

Here's an easy and quick trick to ripen avocados in a matter of hours.

You only need one paper bag If you haven't tried this method before, you'll love it because it's quick and very easy. While normal ripening can take days, even more than a week, the paper bag method can get an avocado to ripen in 1-2 days depending on how ripe it was beforehand.

Just leave the avocado in a paper bag for 1 or 2 days, sealing it tightly. Everything else will happen by itself. It is important to leave the bag of avocados in a dark, dry and ventilated place, such as a closet.

This method works not only with avocados, but with any other fruits and vegetables. When you put the fruit in the paper bag, the gas released from them as they ripen saturates the inside of the bag and speeds up the ripening process.

It is important to note that the paper bag should be brown and tight. This type of material prevents the formation of molds and mildew that spoil the fruit.

If you want to make the avocado ripen even faster (in less than a day), put a slice of apple or banana in the bag and close tightly. Store in a warm but not humid and wet environment. The freshly cut fruit in the bag emits a large amount of ethylene, which accelerates the ripening process many times over.
