One of my biggest aha moments in the kitchen was when I realized that I could make homemade guacamole for a fraction of the cost of the store-bought varieties AND, it tastes great!
Once I learned what an avocado actually looks like and how to select the perfectly ripe fruit, I haven’t stopped making batches of fresh, creamy guacamole.
In fact, raid my kitchen any week and I’ve always got at least 4 ripe avocados on the counter top and another 3-4 unripe avocados ripening in a brown paper bag in one of our kitchen cabinets.
It’s safe to say our homemade guacamole has become a year-round family staple. It tastes just as refreshing in the summertime after a long hot day in the sun as it does in the fall to compliment Sunday afternoon football games.
The best part? My kids love helping out.
From scooping out the fleshy meat to grinding the ingredients together with the mortar and pestle to carefully adding the right amount of sea salt and hot sauce, making homemade guacamole is our new hobby.
Once you make your first batch yourself, there’s no way you’ll ever go back to store bought. The freshness and creaminess is simply unparalleled.
Don’t believe me? You must see for yourself.
