Keeping It Fresh-Guacamole & Avocado

Keeping Guacamole & Avocados Fresh

We really like avocados and all the different uses but one problem was trying to keep the prepared or cut avocado fresh and from turning brown.  With these two methods the problem becomes non existent.  For guacamole it’s as simple as adding water to the top of your prepared guacamole. Covered, it will keep without turning brown in the refrigerator for up to three days,  not that it would even last that long!  Here are the details.


Make your guacamole.
Put the guacamole in a bowl that has a tight-fitting lid.
Pack the guacamole tightly in the bowl, pressing out any air bubbles.
Dribble in some lukewarm water. Make sure the water covers the surface of the guacamole, about 1/2 inch of water.
Put on the lid and refrigerate for up to 3 days.
When ready to eat, take off the lid and and gently pour out the water.
Stir up the guacamole to incorporate any extra moisture.

Another method is:


To place the avocado in a clean cottage cheese or similarly sized airtight container with a piece of cut up onion. Cover it with a lid and refrigerate.  A cut avocado can stay fresh for several days this way. Probably has to do with the sulfur compounds that the onion releases.
