About Guacamole

According to Wikipedia, Guacamole is an avocado-based dip spread or salad which was first developed by Aztecs but is now in Mexico.

A Guacamole avocado needs to be flawless and should not be very ripe. You also need to select an avocado that has a medium neck: the smaller the avocado’s neck area, the better the taste.

Chefs of advise that “a medium-sized, narrow-necked, firm fruit offers the best guacamole because its innards, though ripe, stay intact.”

Keep the fruit at about 13 degrees Celsius which will make the fruit maintain its firmness and be ripe enough without turning mashy.

Ensure that you do not cut the avocado open when you keep it in the fridge because it will start browning and form ugly spots. This will eventually affect the guacamole. However if you have already cut it, pour some lemon juice on it. This will delay the process.
