How to Ripen a Hard Avocado
It is easy but takes a little time.
Pan through the pictures to see how to tell an overly ripe avocado from a hard avocado -- the good ones have a black skin, a little shine but not too much, and when you touch them, they give a little. But be careful... squeezing them causes bruises if you are not going to use it right away. Just be gentle. And don't let the bag boy pack them with the cans because they are hard -- that causes bruising, too. I often ask them to bag them separately.
