What's the best way to "quick ripen" a too-firm avacado?
Place in a paper bag with a banana.
I usually wrap in newspaper works a charm!
I second the trick with the paper bag ...works great with plaintains too!!!
This sounds strange, but a caterer once told me how to keep extra guacamole from turning Brown in the fridge. She said spray a layer of Pam on the top, then when you go back to eat it, just scrape it off! Seems unusual but it does work.
An even easier way, in my opinion, to keep your guacamole looking fresh is to put down saran wrap on top of the guacamole and work out the air bubbles. The guacamole oxidizes on contact with the air so that is why you need to put the wrap directly on the guacamole and get the air bubbles out. After that it will last for a couple of days and no need top waste any scraping off the top layer.
Also, the lime that you add, in addition to adding to the taste, helps to prevent this oxidation as well.
Another great way to keep guacamole from going brown when stored, leave about half of the seed/pits in. They naturally prevent browning
