- The myth that leaving an avocado
stone in the guacamole will keep it from turning brown began because people
noticed that the guacamole directly under a stone stayed green, but this is
because that was the part not exposed to the air. So, if you want to keep your
guac bright green while storing, press a piece of plastic wrap directly over
the top, squeezing out all the air bubbles so that the plastic is in direct
contact with the guacamole, and voilà, no more browning!
- Mashing avocados can be done with
a potato masher, the back of a fork (for a chunkier guacamole), or in a food
processor (for a smoother guacamole).
