Keep your guacamole from turning brown

Avocados are frequently cited by health professionals as containing a healthy fat. Guacamole is a delightful way to enjoy avocados. Here is a way, to keep guacamole from turning brown if you prepare it a few hours — or even 24 hours — ahead of time.

Pack guacamole firmly (to remove air bubbles) and so it is level in a container with a tight-fitting lid. Press down on the guacamole with a spoon while packing it.

Cover with about 1/2-inch of lukewarm water. Place lid on container and refrigerate.

Carefully pour off the water before serving. Stir guacamole to mix in any remaining moisture.
