All of a sudden the food world is messing with a most perfect dip, the guacamole. The first evidence of this came a couple of days ago when I came across a recipe/story about brusselmole, a guac made with brussel sprouts. Oh my...no. No surprise this originated in England, the home of brussel sprout menus.
But then yesterday someone asked President Obama if he liked peas in his guacamole. The full recipe also included sunflower seeds. Oh my...no. This is not guacamole. Also noted a guac with yogurt named Yogamole.
Please food world, leave the guac alone. The hardest part of making this dip is finding the perfect avocado. In grocery stores around here they are often hard as a rock or as soft as cream cheese. It's necessary to handle the avocados to test their ripeness-not hard but not soft either-it's a tricky business. I'd bet grocery store produce workers entertain themselves in the back room by sharing stories of how customers handle the avocados. The most handled fruit/vegetable ever.
Oh, and, for once I agree with the president. He said, oh my...no.
