Because sometimes you just don't want a whole avocado all at once. Don't get me wrong; I can eat an entire avocado with my eyes closed. But often I'll use only half to garnish a salad or soup, or spread on some crackers. And I want the rest to still be good later.
When I was a kid we'd just tuck half in the fridge, with some plastic wrap on it or slipped inside a sandwich bag. It invariably had completely browned on top by the time we got back to it.
The method I use these days is painless, mindless, and all too simple:
- Cut your avocado in half, and use the half you need.
- Don't remove the pit from the half you want to save. Leave it intact.
- Cover the saved half with the empty husk by balancing it on top. Just close it up like a lid of a box.
- Pop it in the fridge, and try to remember to use it within a day or two.
