Did you know that California grows 95% of the world’s avocados, and that Californians are the world’s largest consumers of avocados? Avocados have a following in the cultures worldwide, but Californians put them into everything from ice cream to sushi. One of the most unusual and absolutely delightful dishes made with avocados is the Avocado Pie. Look into the family recipe books of most native Californians, and you will probably find an avocado pie recipe. There are many versions in making the pie, and they all taste wonderful!
Leo Porter of Fort Klamath shared this wonderful pie recipe with me. Leo grew up on an avocado farm in California. This is his version of the recipe for avocado pie that was created by his aunt in the 1970s, and is now one of his signature dishes.
