How to choose an avocado well
There are several kinds of avocados which come from various countries, but to be really good they must be perfectly ripe, i.e. they must "give" a little, neither hard nor too soft.

To check this, you should never press with your thumb on the fruit, because you will bruise the flesh and make a brown mark which will show after peeling. The simplest way is to take the fruit in your hand, and exert a slight pressure with all your fingers. You should feel a certain flexibility.

If it's completely soft or very hard, look for another one. If it's firm, buy it, but in this case leave out of the fridge for a day or two so that it can ripen fully.

Avocado is rarely paired with sorrel, yet they go well together as the slight acidity of the sorrel balances the smooth richness of the avocado nicely. In this recipe they are combined in a cool, fresh avocado and sorrel mousse, served here with eggy bread fingers.
