So my mom always brings me all kinds of fruit and veggies that are on the verge of over-ripe. :
So the kids wanted avocado dip and are all standing around me WAITING : patiently.
I cut them open and there are spots on every one and there are about 9 avocados. I don't like the brown spots so I scooped off most of what I could for the dip.
Does that mean that they are bad?
I would have thrown them in the trash but the kids were wanting them and my mom was still over and she thinks its fine.

The green parts were still good (but probably wouldn't have been tomorrow!) Enjoy!

I do the same. Just scoop out the spots that look gross or odd, and eat the rest.

They're still technically good but I find that an overripe avocado tends to taste funny, even with the brown spots wiped away.

sorry, but the thread title would make a great band name.
