Life hack: How to stop an avocado from browning 80



View Profile

When a cut avocado goes brown, it can be very frustrating and often a waste… but with this trick you won’t need to worry!

All you need is:

  • A large pot of boiling water
  • A slotted spoon
  • A bowl of cold water and ice cubes
  • Your avocado

Here’s what to do:

  1. Put your cut, ripe avocado half into a pan of rapidly boiling water.
  2. Leave the avocado in the water for exactly 10 seconds, no more or no less.
  3. At exactly 10 seconds, put the avocado into the bowl of ice-cold water and ice cubes with a slotted spoon to stop the avocado from continuing to cook.
  4. Leave to cool completely then remove from the water and dry with paper towel.
  5. Place in the fridge – the avocado half should stay green for a day or so longer.
