    This definitely works. I’ve had half for lunch one day, left the stone in the other half and kept it in a tupperware box in the fridge for lunch the next day, no brown!

    Love this tip. I’ve also heard that’s how you keep guac from turning brown too. Keep the pit in the bowl with the guar!

    Nothing beats eating green guacamole instead of it turning a nasty brown color!

    This is definitely an awesome trick! It also helps if you keep the avocado in an airtight container so oxygen can’t get to it. I love avocados more than anything! 🙂

    I love this trick and it will stay ok in the fridge for about a day from my experience!

    Great tip, Meagan! Another one that’s useful is to pop the shell of the used half of avocado back on top, and wrap up the whole thing in a plastic bag. The less air that gets to the fresh half, the less brown it will turn! 🙂

    What a great tip! I’m always wasting leftover avocado so this here is so helpful!

    Great tip (and more great tips in the comments)! Brown avocados are the worst.
