“Avocado”is one of those words we owe to the Nahuatl language.
The original word is: ahuacatl, and the Spanish form is aguacate, from which the English word for this fruit derives from. Most European languages have a similar word for it too.
“Ahuacatl” literally means testicles, because of the fruit’s shape and appearance.
The Persea americana is native to Mexico and some parts of central and south America where in Peru and Ecuador is known as palta.
Sliced, in salsa, guacamole or on their own, avocados are always a treat.
Probably the most popular of all varieties is hass, and although many Mexicans take extreme pride on it being a native fruit, that specific cultivar was originally produced in California.
Say whatever you want about creative cuisine, in my book they always and only should be eaten salty.
Avocado ice cream, pies or puddings simply don’t have a place in my repertoire.
