4 Methods For Stopping Avocado Turning Brown

via Huffington Post 

There are lots of suggestions in circulation and most of them fail miserably. Some of the recommendations include the following.

  1. Lemon And Lime Citrus Bath
  2. Leaving The Pit In and covering with skin.
  3. The Water Method which is used by Chefs
  4. Covering Avocado with plastic wrap

Well, according to the Huffington Post it’s all a big waste of time! They road-tested all the ideas and actually found that leaving the Pit was the best of a bad bunch.

Soaking the avo’s in water for up to 4 hours prior recorded the worst result, and the other methods made no difference!

So, after road-testing all 4 popular methods, it was a big fat fail! As you can see by the photos above, the results 24 hours later are far from encouraging.

Stop Avocado Turning Brown Trick

So where to from there? We were excited to find this awesome tip from The Kitchn. It is their suggestion that placing your unused avocado in a plastic container with a piece of chopped onion is the answer.

Apparently, it will keep your Avocado fresh for days. They also said that this process works for Guacamole. All you need to do is sprinkle uncut onion on top of your dip, and it apparently works a treat.

So, why does it work we hear you ask?

It works because onions contain sulfur, which prevents the enzyme from interacting with the air. Just put the cut avocado in an airtight container with a piece of onion, cover with a lid, and store in the refrigerator.

It should keep for a couple of days or at least long enough for you to use up the other half. Using up your less than perfect Avo’s in sauces, smoothies, and browines is also better than binning them.
