Frequently Asked Questions
Below you will find the answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about avocado toast:
How do you store avocados?
You can store unripe avocados on the counter for up to 4-5 days, until they’re ripe and you’re ready to eat them. If you’re worried about them ripening too quickly, store the avocados in the fridge instead for 3-5 days.
How can you tell when an avocado is ripe?
You can tell if an avocado is ripe by the color and the firmness. Unripe avocados are typically bright green, while the ripe ones will be dark green or black. Ripe avocados should be firm, but still soft enough to squeeze in your hands. Once an avocado is ripe, it has a 2-3 day window before it becomes too ripe.
How do you ripen an avocado?
The best and quickest way to ripen an avocado is to place it on the counter in a sealed brown paper bag. Depending on how ripe the avocado is, it can take between 3 and 5 days to ripen.
Avocado Toast Make Ahead Tips
Because avocado tends to turn brown in the fridge due to oxidation and the dish only takes a few minutes to prepare, I don’t recommend making this dish in advance.
However, if you want to make it ahead of time or end up making too much, you can store mashed avocado in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 24-28 hours. You can also freeze mashed avocado in an airtight container for up to 5 months.
