  • How do you store a cut avocado?

    I can only eat half an avocado at a time, and despite putting the other half in a ziploc bag with a bit of lemon juice, it still turned yuck.

    How do you store the other half of an avocado?

    In my belly.

    Seriously, just eat the whole thing.

    I saw a stupid "avocado saver" at the grocery store. Suppose you could do that.

      Maybe try dousing the cut surface with lemon juice, then pressing plastic wrap tightly against the exposed flesh.

        this. if there's plastic wrap right up against the flesh, it shouldn't turn "yuck"

          I squeeze lemon juice over it and store it in a plastic baggie with the seed still in the half I am keeping.

            Do they freeze well? Or not?

              I've never, ever had that problem, but when I turn several into guacamole they store well. The lime juice helps, then you press plastic wrap right on the surface of the guacamole in the bowl.

                Always store the half that still has the seed in it - it prevents it from turning so yucky - really, it does! I pop the left over half with the seed into a round tupperware container with airtight lid. There is enough air in there so that it doesn't get damp and rotty, but keeps the whole thing quite nicely for several days.

                  I just stick it in a plastic bag. Sure, it gets all brown and gross-looking, but it still tastes fine to me.

                    I wrap it in saran wrap....the closer the plastic to the cut edge, the less brown it will be

                      Those saver things don't really work very well. I used to eat just a half, but I love avocados so much now that I always just eat the whole thing.

                        Spritz with lemon or lime juice, saran wrap against the cut flesh, shoved into a baggie.

                          i cut the avocado in half, i eat the half without the seed and store the other half with the seed in a baggie in the fridge. . . i always heard they save better with the seed. even when i make guacamole i store it with a seed in it. . . weird habit from my mom but it seems to work.

                              they can be frozen and used in smoothies...just cut into sizes that your blender can handle, freeze pieces on a plate or sheet pan, and then transfer to a freezer bag once hard

                              I prefer avocado and raw farm eggs for protein in our smoothies.

                              avocado is a serious thickener and makes a very smooth smoothie or pudding if you use a lot

                              pudding (or fudgesicles):
                              avocado(s)
                              coconut milk
                              raw cocoa powder
                              stevia and/or raw honey
                              vanilla
                              cinnamon, to taste
                              pinch of sea salt
