Waiting for an avocado to ripen is an excruciating limbo for the dramatic and/or impatient among us.

But it doesn't have to be. You could pop the inedibly hard fruit in a paper bag and wait days for it to soften up, or you can add it to your lunch today using this wondrous workaround that ripens any avocado in as little as 10 minutes.

All you need is an oven, some tin foil, a baking sheet and an unripe avocado.

Set the oven to 200 degrees Fahrenheit. Cover the avocado in tin foil, put it on a baking sheet and stick it in the oven.

Wait 10 minutes. Make toast. Take a micronap. Call your mom. Just be sure to check on the little monster's progress at the appointed time.

Harder fruits may take a bit longer, but whenever yours is pleasingly soft, allow it to cool in the fridge before diving in.

Now you know. Go forth and spread that superfood atop every snack. All guacamole everything, all the time.
