When I was a kid, I used to literally sneak avocado chunks out of my salad, into my napkin, and sadly, yes . . . into the trash. Can you believe that!? If you’ve been keeping up with my blog, you know that these days, I cannot get enough avocados, and I consider them to be a precious culinary treasure. Truly!
I love them any which way! On their own (with a touch of sea salt, of course), in salads and sandwiches, on burgers or chips, in sauces or smoothies . . . and now in butter!
That’s right, today we’re making avocado butter! And no, this is not a beauty product! (Avocados work their way into all sorts of skin care and hair care “butters.”) This, however, is an edible, creamy, rich, flavorful spread full of deliciousness!
This Avocado Butter is absolutely fantastic on grilled corn, which makes for a great side dish at your next summer BBQ. How about this weekend!?And yesterday, I spread it on a bagel for breakfast. So good!
Are there foods you hated as a kid, that you love now?
