How to Make an Avocado Ripe & Soft in Just 10 Minutes

It takes only 10 minutes to make an unripe avocado ripe and soft.

Use this trick to make a delicious salad, sandwich, or appetizer with just about any fruit.

Perfectly tender, almost creamy avocado will decorate any recipe or an excellent independent delicacy. But the same can’t be said for an unripe, hard avocado that doesn’t taste like ripe at all.

There are many ways to speed up the ripening process of certain fruits, including the 10-minute trick, which can be resorted to in case of emergency if you brought an unripe avocado from the store and the cooking process is already in progress.

Alas, these fruits are far from cheap, and they are often thrown away due to the fact that they become soft too quickly.

On the other hand, it is often possible to cut open an avocado and find that the degree of ripeness is not what it first appears. And if you can’t wait a few days for the fruit to ripen, use this life hack.

You will need an oven and foil. Start by preheating the oven to 90-95 degrees Celsius.

Wrap the avocado of your choice in the middle of a piece of foil, sealing all of the pieces tightly. Place the wrapped avocado in a baking dish and place in the preheated oven.

The heating process gently releases the gas surrounding the fruit and helps speed up the ripening process.

After about 10 minutes, you can remove the baking sheet from the oven, protecting your hands with special mittens (note that you may need a little more time, depending on how firm the fruit is initially).

You can then place the avocado on a cooling rack. The fruit should still be covered with tin foil.

Let it cool completely, removing the foil only when the fruit is completely cool. Carefully cut an avocado in half, remove the pit, and enjoy a salad, sandwich, or any other dish with this ingredient.

This method works for slightly underripe avocados, but not for fully firm ones.

For inedible hard fruits, there is another life hack, you will need an apple, a paper bag and an extra 72 hours of time (sometimes the process can move faster).

Place the avocado in a paper bag along with the apple. Poke tiny holes in the paper bag with a toothpick or pin and leave the paper bag on the counter at room temperature.

Apples can speed up the ripening of other fruits because they produce ethylene, known as the fruit ripening hormone, which speeds up the ripening of nearby fruits.

Within three days, you should have a delicious creamy avocado ready to eat.
