Cook’s Tip: Keeping an Avocado Green


Here’s how to keep an avocado green in your packed lunch (because isn’t avocado the most luxurious part of lunch?).

Cut the avocado in half and remove the pit. With a small knife cut a cross-hatch pattern through the avocado pulp down to the skin, being careful not to cut through the skin.

Cut one or two slices of citrus and lay them on the cut surface of the avocado. Sandwich the other avocado half on top and wrap tightly. At lunchtime just squeeze the avocado and the little cubes will pop right out, perfectly perkily green.

    Great idea. I think another option is to leave the pit in.

    Yeah, adding the pit to storage is definitely something I do, but I do this as well when I have lemons on hand.  I shared this, since it really is great to know for those skeptical of taking avos for lunch, etc!  Thanks:)
