  6. *BONUS PIN* How to Preserve Avocados in the Freezer on Eating Richly – Avocados are one of my absolute favorite foods…and often expensive. A few weeks ago they were on super sale and I bought more than we could eat right away. So I tried this method of freezing them, using lime juice rather than lemon juice, as that’s what my guacamole recipe calls for. We thawed a bag out this past weekend, added the rest of the guacamole ingredients, and it was absolutely perfect! Next summer I’m going to really stock up! can you freeze avocados tips pinterest eating richly preserve avocados

      I hear you Crafty Gardner. It is a concern. And why I try to always link back to the original source – which can take some sleuthing sometimes!

        Link backs are great if you can find them, but others still save images to their computers to post with a link, and that should have permission before being done. I’ve had my images posted in all sorts of places with no links back, and it looks like my work belongs to someone else. That is the main reason I don’t pin anymore. I do look from time to time as there are some great ideas there.
