Avocados are unquestionably one of the best and most versatile fruits out there.
In a salad? Guacamole? Smoothie? On Toast? Yes please!
But there is nothing worse than when you have your sights set on that avocado-y goodness, only to find its hard as a rock.
We have stumbled across the best hack ever.
All it involves is an avocado, a baking sheet, tin foil and an oven.
1. Wrap the avo up in the tinfoil – similar to a jacket potato.
2. Gently place it on a tray with baking paper.
3. Pre-heat the oven to 200 degrees Fahrenheit (approx 90 degrees Celcius) and wait ten minutes.
4. Remove the avo and place in the fridge for a few minutes to cool down.

The technique ultimately works by speeding up the ethylene gas reaction that ultimately ripens the fruit.
