How do I keep guacamole from turning brown?
The trick is to put the pit in the guacamole...but best advice is to make it and serve it on the spot.
Guacamole is best served right away but if you need to prepare it ahead of time then cover it up and put it in the fridge. Air is what causes things to turn brown, if you cover the prepared guacamole with plastic wrap and then refrigerate, it will be good.
I always use lemon or lime in preparing guacamole. If you squeeze a little lemon or lime to taste into the avocado mixture, the guacamole will keep its nice green color for a few hours before turning brownish green. The citric acid in citrus fruits helps many vegetables and fruits keep their fresh color. Try adding lemon to the water when steaming artichokes and asparagus. Drizzle or coat apple slices to keep them from browning.
