Store Guacamole With A Layer Of Water To Keep It Fresh
Guacamole is healthy, delicious, and simple to make, but it has one major flaw: it does not store well. An easy approach is to preserve the dip in a layer of water.
Avocado flesh contains an enzyme that reacts to oxygen, which means that it starts to oxidize and brown as soon as it's exposed to air.
To avoid oxidation during storage, don't let your guacamole come in contact with air. This is where the layer of water comes in.
Simply smooth the guacamole's surface and pour water on top until fully covered. When you're ready to eat, drain the water and stir the remaining water into the guacamole.
