If you're a homemade guac lover, it's a problem you've experienced: avocados so hard that by the time they ripen, its three days later and you've lost that nacho craving (and really, what a problem!). Most avocados aren't ripe yet when they're sold in stores, which sucks when you want to buy the fruit (and yes, it is a fruit) to cook with that night. But there's a solution, and it only takes a few minutes.


That's right, you can "ripen" an avocado by throwing it in the oven! And according to BuzzFeed, the low temperature is enough to keep it from getting gross and hot on the inside. Now you have no excuse not to eat produce, even if it's just on top of sausage tacos.
