AVOCADOS IN ABUNDANCE
During our severe lockdown, friends' Avocado trees have been bearing fruit in abundance and they've been unable to share it with friends and family, but as we have more freedom of movement now, hubby dropped by and picked up a bag full of gorgeous giant avocados and they started ripening just in time to make something special for @qurator's HIVE TOP CHEF!

Spanish and Portuguese Conquistadors discovered that the milky liquid from an avocado seed turns red when exposed to air and used this as ink.
Some documents written with the seed ink are still preserved today.
Avocado has much more potassium than bananas; potassium decreases the risk of stroke, lowers blood pressure and preserves bone mineral density. Avocado also helps improve LDL levels and further contains glutathione which boosts the immune system.
