Don’t let brown avocados spoil your favorite game day dip! Here is a cheap trick to keep avocados from turning brown:
Leave the avocado pit in the dip! It seems totally bizarre, but it works!
Cut open the avocado, remove the pit, and scoop out the flesh. Mix up your guacamole or whatever dip you’re making with your avocado. Then toss the avocado pit back into the dip. The avocado pit tricks the avocado into thinking it hasn’t been cut open, so it doesn’t turn brown! Be prepared – you’ll spend a lot of time explaining to guests what that big pit is doing in your dip, but I’ve found it’s worth it to keep your favorite dip from turning brown.
You can also give your avocados a light spritz of lemon juice to keep them from turning brown. Just be sure not to add too much as that can change the taste and texture of whatever you’re making.
