Most people don’t eat an entire avocado at once due to their high fat and calorie content, but storing them properly is easier said than done. They’re prone to turning brown extremely quickly, but there are tricks you can use to make them stay fresh for longer.

Wrap Them Up

Leaving your avocados in your fridge as they are won’t do them any favors. The least you can do to delay the browning process is to cover them with some plastic wrap.

Olive Oil

A tiny drop of olive oil can help you keep your cut avocados fresh for longer. Brush your halved avocados with olive oil that doesn’t have a strong taste and store them in an airtight container to prevent them from browning.

Lemon to the Rescue

The olive oil method can also be repeated with lemon or lime juice. Just like all the other citrus fruits, lemon contains strong antioxidants, which can come in handy in this situation.

Onion Method

Avocados and onions may not seem like the perfect combo, but they are. If none of the previous methods work, chop some red onions and place them in an airtight container with avocados on top. Their strong vapors will prolong the browning process of your avocados.
