Avocado Pickles


It’s All Good!

Celebrate spring with avocado pickles. Avocados are a naturally nutritious food high in dietary fiber, vitamins and minerals, and healthy fats. Avocado pickles are delicious by themselves, and are also a great addition to burgers and sandwiches, or as a topping for salads, tacos, fish or chicken.

Ingredients

  • 3 firm avocados (not too firm to slice)
  • 1 cup distilled white vinegar
  • 1 cup water
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. kosher salt
  • ½ tsp. whole black or multi colored peppercorns
  • Optional for Brine
  • ½ tsp. garlic powder or fresh minced garlic
  • ½ tsp. mustard seeds
  • ½ tsp. dill seeds
  • ½ tsp. coriander seeds
  • ½ tsp. celery seeds
  • Optional for Jar
  • A few sprigs of fresh thyme or basil

Directions

  1. Place the vinegar, water, sugar, salt, peppercorns, and any of the optional brine ingredients into a small pot. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally to dissolve the sugar and salt. 
  2. Once boiling, remove the pot from the heat and let it cool to room temperature.
  3. While the brine is cooling, peel and pit the avocados. Cut the avocados into half-inch-wide slices. 
  4. Place the slices into two half-pint or one full-pint sized glass jars, along with the fresh herbs, if using. 
  5. Pour the cooled brine into the jar(s), covering the avocado pieces. Place the lid on the jar(s) and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, but preferably overnight before serving.
