Tip of the Day: Preventing Guacamole from Browning

One way to prevent guacamole from turning brown is to save the pit after mashing up the avocado. Before putting the dip in the fridge, place the pit directly in the guacamole. The acid from the pit will help prevent browning.

I also like to press plastic wrap directly onto the guacamole as the browning occurs as a result of the oxidation of the avocado and preventing exposure to air will also help keep it green!
