The dream: walking into Trader Joe’s and stumbling upon a mountain of perfectly ripe (but not too soft) avocados. The reality: stumbling upon a mountain of rock-hard avocados that won’t be ripe for another week. Dammit.
But, wait—the Avocado Sock is here to solve all of our avo woes. Yep, it’s exactly what it sounds like: a wool pouch that cradles your avocado, infusing the tough skin with lanolin and ripening it overnight.
The results? A ripe avocado in 24 hours or less, just begging to be made into guac. Or smashed on toast. Or sliced into a rose. The opportunities are endless.
Would a regular wool sock be just as effective? Probably. Is $12 kind of steep for a sock you can’t even wear? Undoubtedly. But is it a really cute idea? Definitely.
