Default Pickled avocado?

Is there such a thing? I have googled both th net and this group and
haven't found anything that mentions it per se (but that doesn't mean
much).

Somebody over on r.f.c. brought it up, so I just thought I'd ask here.

Thanks.

I've never heard of it, but it would seem that a ripe avocado would be too
soft to pickle in the usual sense, IMHO.

I picked up some pickled (unripe) walnuts (wonder how pecans would do?).
There is a type of avocado I've had over the border in Mexico that is very
small and the skin is so tender it doesn't have to be peeled. Really. I've
tasted it and everything. I'm thinking that one might take to pickling when
a bit firm still, but one cannot bring uncooked avocado over (it doesn't say
uncooked, just have to be pitted, but who cooks avocado anyway?).
Interesting idear - what herb/spice? The pickled walnuts taste like
worcestershire sauce. Cilantro might be a given, perhaps basil? tarragon?
mint? oregano?

How about an unripe one? Like using an unripe mango in chutney? It
sounds pretty unappealing to me; I like my avocadoes ripe.

The only way I eat avocado is in guacamole, otherwise I don't care for
them. Never met a mango that I liked either, even when I owned a piece
of a 10 hectare mango plantation in the Philipines. They just taste
astringent to me.

I don't think there's anything you can do to avocado that would make
me like them but, Gerry loves them so she looks after my share.
But, speaking of mangoes and chutney, we've been preserving quite a
few different chutneys over the past week or so. Tuesday is our usual
trip to town day and we intend to pick up some green mangoes at one of
the local Asian markets for the next batch, Mango-Apple. Surfing
around the 'Net I ran across many warnings about green mangoes,
something I'd never heard before. Here's a C&P.
"Caution: Handling green mangoes may irritate the skin of some people
in the same way as poison ivy. (They belong to the same plant family.)
To avoid this reaction, wear plastic or rubber gloves while working
with raw green mango. Do not touch your face, lips or eyes after
touching or cutting raw green mangoes until all traces are washed
away."
Having just recently completed a regimen of prednisone for a rather
severe run in with poison ivy, I think I'll follow the rubber glove
advice.

I heard Madhur Jaffrey, raving about the ones from her native India, in
an interview about her book, _Climbing the Mango Trees_. She said it
was practically impossible to get a decent mango in the US. Now that
the import restrictions have been altered, maybe it's possible to get
better ones. I certainly haven't seen them yet. I've made mango salsa
a few times and each time the mangoes were practically tasteless.

Ew. That sounds about as appealing as pickled butter, to me. I mean,
really, avocado, as yummy as I think it is, is mostly just a glob of fat.

I've seen trad Mexican (not Tex-Mex) recpes for chicken in an avocado
broth. Probably could google for them.

In Central America, they call it "butter that grows on trees."

When I visited my brother in Saipan, there were these pickled mango
slices I became fond of. Very crisp, very crunchy, and fire engine
orange. The pickled papaya was similar, only fire engine yellow.

I love fresh papaya and even the dried slices. First time I ever ate it
was in Thailand when I was there on R&R and fell in love with the fruit
and the country. Unfortunately what I can get here is usually either
over ripe or green so it's not as good.

How interesting. Mebbe I'll pickle a bit of unripe avocado. Could do one in
a pint jar fer sure. New ways to use fiber!

I'm fortunate enough to live within walking distance of the Mission and
can easily accomplish those.

But at my brother's... was odd to be in a place where mangos and papayas
just grew everywhere, and my sister-in-law was complaining that plums
and peaches were $12 a pound.

Have you had Som Tam (Spicy Thai Green Papaya Salad)?
