Did You Know?
: The lime juice not only adds flavour but helps keep the mashed avocados from darkening. Add it to the mashed avocados as soon as possible. If you don't have lime juice, use lemon juice.
: If only very firm, unripe avocados are available in the supermarket, let the avocado ripen at room temperature until it yields to gentle pressure but is still firm.
