They said it couldn’t be done but let me be the one to tell you – avocados can, in fact, be pickled. That being said, these were a more interesting experiment. In the spirit of Cinco de Mayo, I wanted to pickle something festive but pickled avocados may not have been the right call. Strange, mushy and to be honest, a possible waste of 4 perfectly good avocados.
However, no experiment is a true failure so maybe some people will find this to their liking. Other variations could be to add some herbage (cilantro seems like a no-brainer) or maybe a little lime juice for pizzazz. Happy Cinco de Mayo, avo-look at this pickled avocado recipe…
