The fruit it bears is huge and luscious and is borne in great quantity. Every year as the fruits set we peer up into the branches and declare, “Oh, not as many as last year.” But as the weeks of bearing and giving of fruit draws to a close, we have all had a fair share of avocado, for this year at least.
Sometimes it is in the simple act of sharing the abundance that we find pleasure.
Very Nice Avocado Dip
1/4 cup mayonnaise or sour cream
1 1/2 tablespoons minced red onion or spring onions
1 – 2 tablespoons lemon juice, to taste
1/2 – 1 teaspoon fresh chilli, to taste
salt and freshly ground pepper
Peel and deseed the avocado. Place in a food processor with the remaining ingredients. Process until smooth. If you want a chunky dip simple mash the avocado with a fork and mix in the remaining ingredients.
