To Keep a Cut Avocado Fresh...'s a quick Friday food tip, found online today.

How do you handle the unused half of an avocado to store it to use another day, keeping it's surface firm and green instead of slimy and brown? I've fought this battle for years decades, without great success, usually resorting to a quick bit of guacamole. Today I found a possible solution online at theKitchn, along with a handful of other avocado tips. Store a cut half, with pit and skin, in an airtight container with a slice of onion. Sulfur off-gassed from the onion may retard the oxidation/spoilage of the exposed avocado. Check out the original post at theKitchn, it seems worth a try. 

The Best Way to Keep Cut Avocado Fresh

Have you ever tried the onion approach? I'm ready to experiment today - what a great excuse to enjoy an avocado and sardine sandwich for lunch. Don't wrinkle up your nose, it's unusual but tasty, healthy and filling. (RL just voiced a dissenting opinion regarding "tasty".)
