Keep your avocado from turning brown with this simple trick!

aguacateGet ready to have your avocado-loving mind blown. Yes, BLOWN! But why you say? Because I just came across a GENIUS tip for keeping a cut avocado from brown, which we all know ain't pretty but happens all the time. The reason I'm so excited about this tip is that I have never ever heard of it before and trust me I eat avocados all the time. I can't tell you how many times I've cut an avocado in half and done my best to store the other half in a way that won't make the lovely green flesh turn brown. I've tried leaving the pit in, using water or lemon, wrapping it tightly with plastic wrap AND putting it in an airtight container. Those methods work with some success, but not like the one I'm about to share with you!

Are you ready for the SECRET to keeping your avocado from browning?

It's a chopped red onion! What you do is you take the half of the avocado that you want to save and make sure that it is the half with the pit still in it. Then you roughly chop and I mean really roughly like just a few big chunks and put the red onion chunks in an airtight container. You then place the avocado half in the container on top of the red onion with the skin of the avocado touching the onion and seal the container. Three days later your avocado will still be as green as can be. BRILLIANT!
