Because we are decadent, we like to have guacamole for dinner whenever we can. I want to share with you our happiest discovery in this vein, namely: Costco's avocados rock the house. As far as I know there is nothing sustainable, ecologically sound, or labor-friendly about them, and certainly nothing local (Costco's own labor policies are very good, however!), but they are damn tasty. I imagine this is mainly the outcome of two factors: (a) they're Hass, and (b) you can get them when they are completely and totally unripe, meaning that they spend their entire stressful time of ripening in the comfort of your home. The result is entirely unblemished, flavorful avocados. Every single freaking time, people! And I've lived in California, so it's not that I have no acquaintance with good avocados, nor with sad, tasteless ones, either.
