Avocados are a separate food group in California and you eat them straight with a sprinkle of sea salt, mashed on toast or sliced on top of tacos. There’s definitely a learning curve for buying the right avocados though. You learn the hard way not to buy overly ripe ones, since they only last a day or so until they become mushy and inedible.
