Sabahan Avocados

I love eating avocados and I remember there was abundance of them when I still lived in Sandakan then. My mom would buy them very often, scoop the flesh out, mash them with some condensed milk and serve chilled. It was so delicious, I tell ya!

After moving over to KL for more than two decades now, I almost forgot about how heavenly this fruit tasted until I was smitten by the fruit smoothie craze months back. Prior to that, I did come across imported avocados sold at the supermarkets but its price and quality put me off. I remember paying RM12 for two avocados and they either turned black and rotted without ripening or simply would not ripe! Bad experience!

When I went back to my hometown during the recent school holidays, I "casually" (okay, enthusiastically) asked my big brother if he could get me some good quality ones. And yes, he or rather his wife got me 10 of which 4 was hijacked by my mom! Hahaha.. Though Sabah is well known for its gigantic home grown avocados but good quality ones are not easy to come by. My second sis in-law got some from the market and its flesh wasn't as good and smooth, tainted by its brown root-like tentacles. She had them blended into thick smoothie form and it still tasted yummy!

So I bet my siblings know what to get for me when they come visit me! LOL!!!

Didn't know we can grow avocados locally. Quite an unusual way of eating avocados but I think it tastes yummy. :)

I love avos too and eat half an avo everyday. In Indonesia, the people blend it with coffee and condensed milk and its an Indon delicacy.
