The 17 Recipes You Should Make Before the Avocado Apocalypse

Hold on to your guacamole: Avocados are in trouble.


Southern California, home to 90 percent of America’s avocados, is currently being scorched by temperatures as high as 122 degrees. And while that’s as hot as hell itself, there’s also been 30-mile per hour winds. This heat and wind provides “a potentially devastating combination for avocado groves planted in sandy soil where the fierce winds can wick away moisture faster than the trees can absorb it,”  The L.A. Times says. Avocado farmers report large portions of their groves are done, shriveled and scorched, and some lost as much as a sixth of their trees.


As Grub Street notes, some farmers admit what they’ll be sending to market now is dropped fruit. However, the worst is yet to come. “There will probably be a minimal amount of avocados for next year because we think that some of the flowers didn’t make it,” one farmer told the Times.


Before the avocado apocalypse (avocalypse?) comes, and the trendiest toast nears the end of its days, you can only do one thing: enjoy avocados while they last. Here are 17 recipes to make sooner rather than later: 


1.) Fried Egg and Avocado Toasts
