Recipe FAQ & Tips
How long does Guacamole stay fresh? It honestly tastes best freshly prepared. Leftovers can be stored in an airtight glass container for a good 3 days in the refrigerator.
Why does guacamole turn brown? Over time, guacamole turns brown due to the natural oxidation process. This is not an indication that it turned bad, but rather a natural process.
Don’t have a food processor at home? Don’t worry. Alternatively, you can finely chop the garlic, coriander, and tomato and mash the avocado using a fork into a fine paste. Mix all fresh ingredients in a small bowl for serving.
How To Easily Squeeze A Lime
By the way, I always use a lime squeezer for my limes. This makes squeezing them very easy. I brought it home from Mexico, but you can buy one online or in the kitchen department of any large store!
Make sure that you buy a high-quality lime squeezer made of aluminum. Unfortunately, plastic ones break very quickly!
