|An amazing Fuerte avocado - this is after 1 hour|
"Why does my avocado (or guacamole) turn brown?"
Answer -- to get to the other side!! ha ha
Oh wait, wrong answer.
Correct Answer: Avocados "oxidize" when they are exposed to air. Just like an apple or a potato.
Here are several ways you can keep your avocado from going brown too fast:
- Use an acid on the flesh (lemon juice, lime juice are often used).
- Use a non-metal knife to cut the avocado (ceramic, plastic or teflon coated).
- Eat a really fresh avocado (like my heritage avocados!)
- When done, store with a tight fitting plastic (wrap or tool).
