How To Get A Ripe (Hass) Avocado - Especially on the East Coast

mitchleeny | Apr 28, 201508:30 AM New York City, when people want (need?) ripe avocados, they're available everywhere; in bodegas, grocery stores, and from the guy with the fruit and vegetable cart on my corner. Problem is, buying a ripe avocado means that you're usually buying a piece of crap - bruised, battered and plenty the worse for wear.

As a public service, especially to those here on the east coast (but I'm sure this will work well everywhere), I took it upon myself to experiment. The absolute best way to get a ripe avocado is to buy an unripe avocado and let it ripen on the counter. Screw all the other methods. I'm specifically, in this case, referring to a Hass avocado, so don't get all upset.
