How To Keep Your Avocado From Turning Brown

  • Avocados are one of the most popular and healthy fruits we enjoy.
  • But the downside is we have to leave it until the last minute to cut or it turns brown.
  • In the past we have been told to squeeze lemon juice on it, cover tightly with plastic wrap or keep the pit in the mashed avocado until ready to serve.
  • I have found all these methods fail after about 30 minutes
  • But here is the 100% sure fire method
  • Bring a large pot of water to a rapid boil.  Drop each avocado in one at a time for 10 seconds only.  This kills the enzyme which turns avocados brown. 
  • Immediately place in a bowl of ice water until no longer warm
  • Use as directed and you will find your avocado stays green for up to 6 hours!
