How to Ripen an Avocado in Just 10 Minutes

Imagine going to the grocery store hoping to find some avocados to make guacamole only to find unripe avocados. This will definitely ruin your appetite but thankfully, we have a trick that makes avocados ripe and soft in minutes:


A tinfoil

Baking sheet


The Process

Using the tinfoil, wrap the avocado

Place the avocado in a baking sheet

Place the avocado in the oven at 2000 F for about 10 minutes or until the fruit becomes soft. Some may take up to an hour if they are really hard.

Remove the avocados from the oven

Put the fruit in the fridge to cool

How this Process Works

Avocados emit ethylene gas that is released slowly causing it to ripen. But since it bakes in tinfoil, the gas surrounds the fruit and this fastens the ripening process.
