Tool Tip: 'Silence of the Lambs' = Great Guacamole

Don't silence THIS Lamb (avocado)!

Everyone remember that great, scary movie with Hannibal Lector? Remember his scary mask?  Somehow this photo of my avocado-tool AND fresh, local Lamb avocados brought this title to mind. 

Anyway - this tool is great for cubing up Lamb avocados quickly and efficiently so you can use them in guacamole. I wish I sold it on my site (www.AvocadoDiva.com) but, alas, it was a gift to me—I believe from Williams-Sonoma. 

And what, you may ask, is a Lamb avocado? The Lamb variety is a late summer/early fall avocado that is related to the Hass; however, it is even larger and more dense and often, more full of oil. You can find them right now in local grocery stores. They are often labeled as "Lamb-Hass" or "Large-Hass. They make excellent guacamole

The Lamb family (who patented this avocado) is LOCAL - they are desendents of the Camarillo family and they live in Santa Rosa Valley! So enjoy this local fruit.

Hey Diva - In the grocery store today, I noticed a package of avocados in the frozen food section and was surprised. I didn't know you could freeze them. Ok, well, one CAN freeze anything... but are they any good when you thaw them or does it mess with the texture/taste?? And can you just freeze them at home or do they do some quick freeze thing that wouldn't work at home?

Hey Rebecca -- I have personally tried it and it didn't work so well. :-( I have heard if you do it with a machine that takes all the air out it works. Gonna have to re-try it some day with that! I would imagine the avocado would be good for guacamole or to bake with - but not as a "whole" fruit. Did you buy some?
