Hey chit chat awesomeness,
My wife and I love the look of avocado seeds. I have been trying to think of a way to preserve them for decoration. I was thinking of soaking it in some varnish. Anyone have any idea if this is possible or have a better idea?

I used to be addicted to the hokey pokey, but then I turned myself around.

I think you can just let them dry out or bake them to dry them. You can also varnish them but I'd make sure it's dry before trying that.

That is a good idea. I wonder if you could dehydrate it. I may have to give it a try.

Feed it a lot of salt and alcohol. That always works on me.

I remember attempts to germinate them, but it always ended up smelly and otherwise failed.

Honestly... this is first time in my life I have heard that, and never expected to.

I found it interesting enough that I had to Google avocado seed images. Surprisingly I discovered your not the only one.

This person like them so much they make them into faces...
