TIPS FOR THE AVOCADO LOVER
Ah, the avocado. It’s healthy and delicious but sometimes oh-so-infuriating. Aside from ripeness issues (is it ready? Is it not?), the fruit can be a letdown when it comes to storage.
Chances are you stow leftovers in tin foil or plastic wrap, which results in brown patches.
But a viral TikTok hack has you covered. The user @KMag1 originally demonstrated a method in July that keeps patches at bay. First, use an avocado that’s cut in half.
Then, put it pit-side down in a clean container filled with water — it can stay there until you need it, for up to 24 hours.
The website insider.com found that aside from murky water and a mushier texture, the trick worked like a dream. To eliminate excess liquid, gently pat the avocado with a paper towel.
