View Full Version : Guacamole-making it last longer

My guacamole seems to go bad pretty quickly. Would adding lime or something else make it last longer?

I only ever make enough for one meal so it is nice and fresh.

Lime would help but it will change flavor some. The secret is once you mix it PUT THE SEED BACK IN IT of course we eat it up soon after it's made as we don't make too much. Joz

I've tried to make it ahead of time, freeze it, refridgerate it, put the seed back in, add lemon juice, etc, it starts to oxidize fast, so the only way to keep it fresh, is to tightly cover it, with something like plastic wrap, this will keep the air from getting to it, then stir it up and voila',
I don't like quack so I only make it for company and Dragggon, he loves it and we never have any left over, so I only know what I know.

It will not turn if you put the plastic wrap direct on the guac....not just covering the bowl. I prefer to make it fresh each time, though, but this method will work for you if you have leftovers.

Very good suggestions. I adore AVO's and live for Fuerte season in particular. I put either lemon or lime juice in the guacamole. Not too much, but maybe a t. per couple AVO's. There are as many recipes as there are cooks but I prefer AVO, minced jalapeno, minced onion, and finely chopped tomato as well as the slight citrus juice mixed in to help prevent oxidation. Placing the avo pit back in and putting snug-fitting plastic wrap right against any leftovers works well. If slight oxidation still occurs, simply scrape off the discolored portions and serve. My trouble is there usually is not any leftovers--radished dipped in guac, cukes dipped in guac, celery sticks dipped.....could be a great addiction.
Let us all know how you do.
