I love Guacamole. It is deliciousness personified.
What I do not like is that it turns brown really easy. I like a little lime juice in my guac, but I am not about to overpower it with lime juice in the hopes that it won't turn brown.
While you can put leftover guacamole in the fridge, it will be the same ghastly shade of brown when you retrieve it. I've heard a few tricks, like keeping the pits from the Avocado can help the color, but it didn't work too well for me.
But I have FOUND it! A way to keep leftover Guac from turning brown! Hallelujah!
What I knew was that it was the oxidizing that caused my favorite dip to turn brown. Oxidizing occurred because of exposure to the air, so all you have to do is remove the exposure to the air.
An airtight lid isn't going to cut it, unless you have a portable vacuum to pump the air out. Saran Wrap over the surface works somewhat, but not perfect.
OK, enough stalling... here is my trick!
Put the leftover guacamole in a tupperware container and then cover a thin layer of water. The guacamole isn't water soluble, so the water just sits on top. You then put a lid on it and pop int he fridge.
When you are ready to eat the delicious leftovers, pour off the excess water and give the gorgeous green guac a stir and you are ready to go.
I tried this and it completely works! I made guac on Saturday and Brad had the leftovers last night.... lo and behold... it was GREEN!
