5. Don’t let the avocado oxidize after splitting it
To prevent it from losing its green color and turning black, put a few drops of lemon on it until all the pulp is covered or brush the avocado half with a little bit of edible oil
. Another alternative is to line the bottom of a container with chunks of onion, then place the avocado, cut side up, on top.
- It will retain its color for 1 to 2 days.
