I was a bit surprised to fine a box full of Avocados on my recent provison supplies. I’m sure that I didn’t ordered it for I believe that it is not available this time of the year here in Sweden. But, I just love they did supply it. It is one of my favorite dessert. Yes, you heard it right! We Pinoys love to eat ice-cold sweet and creamy mashed avocados.
In fact, I only discover that avocado are great to have on green salad after I sail and work with European crew onboard. And on one of my previous cargo vessel which is liner on Rio Haina, Dominican Republic, I saw stevedores enjoying a ripe avocado as a main course for their lunch. They just add a dash of salt on avocado and eat it with rice.
So, from Guacamole of the Aztecs, Main Course of the Dominican and Desserts of the Pinoys, Avocados are well loved around the world.
Now on with the cooking…
