Preserve your guac and avos
Seeing as avocados are priced like gold these days, you don’t want to let yours go bad before you eat them. And avocados turn fast. One day makes the difference from a rock-hard inedible avocado to a semi-soft, ready-to-eat fruit. When avocados aren’t yet ripe, store them on the counter. Check their firmness every day, and when they reach the perfect readiness, put them in the fridge – they’ll stop ripening and should last about a week. If you cut into one, store the remainder with the pit in, as its oils keep the fruit fresh. If you’ve made guacamole or some spread with your avocado, sprinkle it with lemon juice and put it in an airtight container to keep it fresh.
