Freezing Avocados

Did you know you can freeze avocados?
And since avocados were $.33 at Aldi (!!!) a few weeks ago, I felt like it was a great time to give this a try!
Most of the time Aldi's avocados are pretty firm, so I let mine sit on the counter in a pretty little bowl for a week. Then I got industrious. I scooped out all the wonderfulness of the avocado, mashed it well and added about a tablespoon of lemon for each avocado.
Then I filled some baggies with enough for guests and some baggies with only 1 1/2 avocados for just our family. I closed the small baggies carefully, pushing out any air and then put all the little baggies in a big baggie.
We've already pulled out a family sized portion and let it thaw on the counter before mixing it with salsa to make some yummy guacamole!
I could also use this as an avocado mayo for sandwiches or mix it with pasta as a very healthy sauce.
Avocado makes pretty much anything better!
