Guacamole is an amazing creamy dip, but I have to admit that it becomes unappealing when it turns brown. But there is a solution: you simply need to use the pit and keep the guacamole sealed as airtight as possible! Place the pit in the middle of your bowl of guacamole, then cover the guacamole with large chunks of onion. The onion releases gases to inhibit the oxidation of polyphenol, which causes the fruit to turn brown. Cover tightly with plastic wrap, pressing the wrap directly onto the surface of the onions, and refrigerate until ready to serve. Just before serving, remove the chunks of onion. You can use this same technique with unused avocado. If you use only half an avocado, keep the pit in the other half and place it in a resealable bag. Slice an onion into chunks and place the onion in the bag with the avocado half. Then get as much air as possible out of the bag, seal it, and place it in the fridge.
- Yield: 3 cups (½ cup per serving)

- Place the avocado and 3 tablespoons of lime juice in a large bowl and mash until it reaches your desired consistency.
- Add the rest of the ingredients and stir until well combined. Taste and add more lime juice if you like.
- Cover tightly and refrigerate for 1 hour for best flavor, or serve immediately. The guacamole will keep in the fridge for 3 days when stored as described above.
