A to Z of Kitchen Tips: A is for...

I've been cooking full-time since I was fourteen years old. I won't tell you exactly how many years that has been, but suffice it to say a long time! But in that time, I've learned a few tricks around the kitchen.

So I'm going to start sharing my A to Z list with all of you--and I hope that you will offer your tips as well!

To begin...

A is for Apples and Avocados:

  • To keep cut apples from turning brown, sprinkle them with a little lemon, lime, orange or grapefruit juice.
  • Have you ever made guacamole from mashed avocado? If so, have you seen how it can turn an unappetizing grey color upon sitting? To keep your guacamole looking green and fresh, save one of your avocado pits and bury in your guac, then cover the surface with plastic wrap.

The guacamole idea really works too! I tried it a month ago and it kept the avocado fresh and green. I'm going to share this idea with my husband's family-they love avocado.
