I said to prevent FURTHER browning and it has worked for me, up to 3 days. but yes, plastic wrap cover directly on to of the dip will contribute to redardation of browning also.

You said 2 cloves--do you mean cloves of garlic?

That seems like an awful lot of carrot for 2 avocados.

All recipes I've read here seem pretty good, although my son-inlaw is a chef from Mexico city and he uses much more cilantro than I've seen here. If you're a cilantro lover like me I would use around 3/4-1cup for 2-3 avocados. Also for the browning problem, when I lived in the US I used a product called fruit fresh to keep things green. Not sure what it is and maybe don't want to know, but it worked fine. Wife used it in making some jams and preserves

I believe fruit fresh is just citric acid. You get the same result from using lemon or lime juice. Fruit Fresh will certainly work though.

I was watching Ming Tsai on TV yesterday and he was using avocado and wasabi together. I thought that would work really well in guacamole.

I am with you wilson42. Give me a lot of cilantro!

forgot about the Fresh Fruit thing. Never thought to apply it to guac. Duh! I don't know if it is, but I just thought, a ground up vitamin C would work? NO????? If they're the same Vit. C alot cheaper.
