Recipe For Preserved Avocados

When I started submitting my avocado recipes for the Afrikado challenge – which I did not win by the way, one of my Facebook friends sent me her recipe for preserved avocados. Funnily enough, a few days later I saw it on another friend’s Facebook page so I am not sure who ‘owns’ the original recipe. Because of that, I have changed the recipe somewhat. The changes were done also to suit my palate and what I consider as a good mix for avocados. I would use these preserved avocados as a topping for pizza or pasta or even served on a slice of toasted sourdough bread. If you know where the original recipe comes from, please let me know. It is the one with country garlic and herb spices.

    1. They taste quite interesting – not like fresh avos, but more like well dressed salad avos 🙂
