During a conversation with Jordan (our super mellow, happy go lucky industrial designer), he vented his fury at the quality of Avocado’s at this time of year (of course it’s the middle of winter in NZ). Somehow, these days, this amazing food of the gods is available in abundant supply year round – although the winter fruit is presented completely unripened and sold on the hope of what a few days on a sunny windowsill may possibly bring. Jordan felt quite strongly that the return on investment was a complete dog so I’m hoping this guacamole will turn his fortunes around – at least until summer rolls around again.
It seems that the topic of pea guacamole is presently quite controversial, a quick google search reveals purists are getting upset about the bastardisation of their beloved dish. Obama even took the time to tweet his dismay at the thought of a pea in his guac! Is social media a treat! Try my recipe and be your own judge. Most importantly don’t panic or question my sanity, there will be avocadoes galore in my guacamole when summer rolls around again!
