Recipe For Preserved Avocados #Afrikado

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. Sounds a nice idea. We have plenty of good avocados around so I might try it. What I would like is a good recipe for green tomatoes….I have a ton of them:)

  2. My favourite sandwich is the one made at a market on the Berea which is a mashed avo with pickled veg on a fresh slice of oama se winkel bread!!!

I would ♥ to hear from you (comments will be visible when I reply)
