How to keep guacamole bright green

First off the tip about putting an avocado pit in your guacamole to slow the browning is just a myth, doesn’t do a thing… I think the fact that most Mexican restaurants put one in the guacamole they make fresh table side has something to do with the myth but it will not slow or stop the browning process. 

The only real way to stop the browning process is to seal out all the air that causes the avocado to oxidize and turn brown. The first way you can do this is simply with plastic wrap pressed firmly on every square inch of the top of the guacamole in your bowl:

One other way to insure that every inch of the surface is prevented from coming into contact with air is to cover the top of the guacamole with a small amount of water before sealing the bowl with plastic wrap. When you get ready to use your guacamole simply pour off the water,  give your guacamole a good stir and serve!

There you go! How to keep your guacamole bright green, looking and tasting fresh! Remember if you have half an avocado leftover we also have a great kitchen hack on how to keep it fresh too! So whether you are trying to keep it fresh before or after you make guacamole we have you covered!

That’s all for now!
