GUACAMOLE IS BEST WITH RIPE AVOCADOS
Guacamole is best made with fresh ingredients. A ripe avocado should be firm but not mushy. A mushy avocado is definitely not what you want.
What are some tips for picking good, ripe avocados? Pick up avocados with the stems still attached first. Brown spots on the inside are more likely to appear if you removed the stem from the plant in the store. Once you have pressed on one end, let go. There should be a slight give to it, but it should still be firm.
WHAT IS GUACAMOLE MADE OF?
Scoop three ripe avocados into a mixing bowl after removing the pits from them. Then carefully mash them with a fork to achieve the smoothness or chunkiness you desire. Stir in the onions, tomatoes, cilantro, garlic, jalapeo pepper, lime juice, and salt. That’s all. Guacamole made easy with the best ingredients.
LEFTOVER STORAGE (AND KEEP IT GREEN!)
It is quite easy for guacamole to turn brown once it oxidizes. While lime juice helps slow the browning of leftover guacamole, it is inevitable that it will eventually turn brown.
Guacamole is commonly preserved by wrapping it with plastic wrap to prevent oxidation. You may be able to get away with this for a day or two. The problem is I’m trying to cut back on plastic, so this method doesn’t work for me.
Guacamole can be kept green by following these steps:
- Make sure your leftover guacamole is well-flattened with a spoon by placing it in a storage container and pressing down firmly.
- Over 1/2 inch of water (cold water works best) add.
- Store the storage container in the fridge with the lid on. There you have it!
- You can enjoy the guacamole by draining off the water, stirring it, and then eating it.
