Who knew.....

.....that avocado storage could be so cute and so darn useful at the same time? This was a gift for my son, the big-time cook. He makes a number of dishes requiring avocado and this works just as he needs. Ripens the avocado nicely and he isn't losing money tossing avocados that over ripened just sitting on the counter or, more importantly, not having a ripe avocado on hand to prepare meals.

I'm pretty obsessed with avocados. I eat them pretty much every day. These do really seem to speed up the ripening process. I've been using them on pears, too.More > < Less

About The Avocado Sock

Avo-Cozy

The Avocado Sock got its start when Maker Dianne Sherwood worked as a caterer. She would stuff unripe avocados into old ski socks to help speed up the ripening process. When she learned that not many other folks knew about this trick, she created a tailored, perfectly avocado-sized version to do the job—because, really, who wants ski socks on the counter?

Dianne’s updated method is adorably small and fits snugly on an avocado. It’s made in Canada from pure Shetland wool that’s sourced from a 200-year old woolen mill in Scotland. The purity of the wool matters; its natural lanolin, not to mention the dark, cozy warmth it creates, is what helps the avocado ripen. The sock gets it ripe evenly and gently and does it in about 48 hours—and is by far the cutest thing we’ve ever seen on an avocado.
