avocado prep

ok I brought home a avocado last night and I only want 2 use like half of it though. Does anyone know how I could keep the rest from turning brown (maybe put it in a container?)?


  • Keeping the pit in is key. Then either seal in container or bag and keep cool in the fridgie-poo.

    Happy RAW-ing:)

  • really? Thanks I never would have thought to keep the pit in.

  • squeeze lime juice over it. it prevents the oxidation that turns it brown. i always put citrus in anything i make with avocado (like guacamole) that i’m not going to eat right away.

    Yeah, there’s something in the stone that prevents oxidation…

    it’s still ok to eat when it’s brown though. Just looks ugly.

  • If I only need half of an avocado, I cut it in half, set aside the half with the pit, scoop the avocado out of the other half, and then put the two halves back together and set it in the fridge. It’s usually all green and beautiful the next day :)

    I’ve recently discovered Reed avocados, which do not turn brown once cut. They are a little larger and rounder than Haas, Bacons, Fuertes, etc., and they’re very creamy.

  • Zoe-well that is good 2 know Suasoria-Wow I will have to start looking 4 those.
