Never Browns Guacamole

Keep your guac green for hours with this simple trick!


  • 1/4 cup sea salt
  • 1/2 cup hot water
  • 1 1/2 cups cool water
  • 3 ripe avocados, (halved and stone (pit) and skin removed)
  • small handful cilantro, (minced)
  • 3 scallions, (white and light green part only, diced)
  • 1 jalapeño, (minced (seeds and membrane removed for mild, or not for spicy))
  • juice of 1 lime


  1. In a large bowl, dissolve the salt in the hot water. Add the cool water.
  2. Halve the avocados and remove the stone (see the video below for tutelage)
  3. Using a large spoon, scoop out the avocado halves and drop in the salt water. Allow them to soak in there for about 10-15 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, chop up your guacamole additions and add them to a bowl that has enough room for them and the avocados. My preferred combination is in the ingredients list above, but feel free to add your favorites.
  5. After the avocados have soaked, remove them from the salt water, give them a quick rinse, and drop into the bowl with the veggies. Mash with a fork, whisk, or potato masher. Season to taste; you probably won’t need any additional salt.
