Minted pea and avocado dip

We've been wondering about whether to try planting an avocado tree in our garden.....We both love avocados, and there is a variety that grows in our area....but I just worry about what we will do if we get a big crop of avocados.

With most fruit or vegetables, there are ways to preserve them and keep enjoying a bumper crop for months ahead, but I don't know of anyway to preserve avocados.  Do you?

Anyhow, while we make our decision, I made a lovely minted pea and avocado dip for our friends coming around this evening.

Here's the recipe:
1 avocado
1/2 cup frozen or fresh peas
2 brazil nuts
handful fresh mint leaves
juice of a lime
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1 - 2 tablespoons water

If using frozen peas, rinse them in water to defrost them.

Add all the ingredients, except the water to a food processor and process until smooth. Check the consistency - as this will vary depending on how juicy the lime is - and add water until you get a smooth dip consistency that you like.

Serve on toast or on crackers or as a dip.

You can see in an earlier photo that I made some homemade fat free potato chips/crisps to go with it.  Just sliced potato, crispened in the microwave.
