I asked for two perfectly ripe. I've got s grim looking bag of halves that need 8 hours to defrost.

Surely these will taste like shit once defrosted? Aibu to dump him?

They're avocados

They're going to taste like shit not matter what!

Bunbaker Fri 27-Nov-15 17:39:37

Never heard of them. Won't they be black?

IHaveBrilloHair Fri 27-Nov-15 17:40:40

They sound gross, had no idea you could get them

Twinkie1 Fri 27-Nov-15 17:41:37

Ooooohhhh they are yummy in smoothies with sinack and berries.

They sound bad. Please come back and let us know. Maybe try one of those strange baked avocado recipes with them. And let us know how that goes too please.

I bet they are for smoothies and not to be eaten with a salad or whatever

Love avocados but never heard of frozen ones! Only one way to find out. Feed back please. Understand you're frustration though.What was he thinking??

lovemyway Fri 27-Nov-15 17:44:49

P1nkP0ppy Fri 27-Nov-15 17:44:57

I thought they went brown and mushy when you thawed them hmm, definitely need berries to disguise them grin

IHaveBrilloHair Fri 27-Nov-15 17:45:21

What is sinack?

DyslexicScientist Fri 27-Nov-15 17:48:13

I shit you not ladies, tesco sell frozen avocados!

I wanted them for a dip, not sure if a zap in the microwave will make them edable tonight

lovemyway Fri 27-Nov-15 17:52:30

I was just wondering what since was too!

lovemyway Fri 27-Nov-15 17:52:24

FiveGoMadInDorset Fri 27-Nov-15 17:56:26

I have seen them in the frozen veg section and avoided

BertrandRussell Fri 27-Nov-15 17:58:44

They're a new Nigella thing.

TheTigerIsOut Fri 27-Nov-15 17:58:34

C'mon, they cannot do frozen avocados, they would taste horrible on defrost.

Yay!!! I have the answer for this one!

I was once grossed out by the thought of frozen avocados when I wanted them for a dip.

YABVU OP grin

They make perfectly fine dips - but you can't use them in salads etc because frozen avocados go a bit mushy;

Something happens to avocado when you freeze it. The texture is just not the same once it thaws

But do carry on and make your dips. Don't microwave them to thaw though - that would be cooked avocado!

It's to do with less food waste. I'm sure they'll be just fine for a dip. Sounds like a good idea to me.
