everyone claims to make "the best guacamole in the world".
makes me mad and confused.
in a poorly stocked kitchen in Val Thorens. It eventually turned into flakey, peppery avocado slices.
This was not the best guacamole in the world.
They should shut the hell up.
you're allowed to say to someone else "this is the best X i've ever had", but not "i make the best X"
i had NO IDEA
I've eaten lots of guacamole in my time, and one thing that's notable is that the quality doesn't really seem to differ greatly between any of it. It's fairly simple to get right isn't it? It's not like mashed potato which 85% of people can't do properly (which in turn makes ME mad and confused).
So, bottom line, any Guacamole made properly = The Best Guacamole in the World™
but shop-bought stuff really is rubbish. i used to think i didn't even like guacamole. madness.
Obviously it's not a patch on home-made but it's never going to be seeing how quickly avocado goes off in storage. It's not as nice but it still serves a purpose...
Mine is third, maybe even fourth, out of all guacamoles I've tried. And that's a lot of guacamole.
I do make the best aoili in the world though. Probably the second best tartare sauce too.
Careful, or else you'll find yourself struck off the "free homemade tablet for DiSers" list, and then where will you be, hmm?
Not in a state of hyper-glycaemic shock, admittedly.
2 avocadoes, garlic heavy, lime, coriander why not, bit of chili
think impresses people when they can make it. Ok, well done you made something from scratch instead of buying a jar. You should be really proud, no really, mashing a fruit is a massive achievement.
Did you see the banana threads yesterday?
it's because it's one of those foods that is REALLY FUCKING TASTY. there are plenty of things that taste better from jars than they ever do homemade (like salsa). guacamole is not one of those things.
I'm just not a fan of people barking about food they made as if they're Raymonb bleedin Blanc. For one thing it's terribly vulgar, and it's (more often than not) nothing to be proud of.
and i enjoyed it.
Today I claim nothing good came from a squeezy bottle, or at least that wasn't better in glass.
Fairy Liquid is much better out of a glass jar.
I struggle to see what the hoo-ha is about anyway. "Yeah, I make the best tasteless, disgusting-looking green mushy shit". Well done.
I USED to be you. But then something changed.

I'd still rather rim a camel than eat Taramosalata mind.
