Guacamole in a Jar: Freeze-Dried Guacamole

Now that I’ve had my freeze dryer for a few months, I want to share one of my favorite recipes that uses only freeze-dried food….Freeze-dried guacamole! Fresh tasting guacamole in 5 minutes from the cupboard.

Why I love freeze-dried guacamole:

Guacamole in a Jar: Freeze Dried Guacamole
Freeze-dried peppers, cilantro, tomatoes, avocados, garlic, and green onions
  • Fresh-tasting guacamole out of the cupboard. I don’t have to worry if I have perfectly ripe avocados on hand.
  • It uses ingredients I’ve already freeze dried and use regularly: avocados, tomatoes, garlic, onions, peppers, and cilantro.
  • I can make up as much or as little guacamole as we need at any time.
  • Freeze-dried avocados keep their vibrant green color and nearly all of the nutritional benefits
  • Stir up a batch of guacamole for one or ten. The recipe is very adaptable.
  • Makes a great gift! Make kits in see-through mylar bags or jars with the ingredients layered inside or pre-blended and the recipe attached.

Don’t have a freeze dryer?

Purchasing a freeze dryer is undoubtedly an investment. My freeze dryer runs almost nonstop, and I’m grateful to have one. I have the medium-size freeze dryer with the premier pump from Harvest Right.

Is this the amount you freeze dry or the amount after freeze drying? I'm a little confused.

The volume of the food doesn't change much, but the amounts are listed in freeze-dried amounts.

I haven't had my freeze dryer very long and I've been researching a lot of stuff. Have you tried making the guacamole first and then freeze drying it? If so, which method do you prefer?

I haven't done that, but have heard from others that it works too. I like the convenience of mixing up just a bit when we need it using this method.
