What you need to make guacamole

How to make guacamole

I always start out with the garlic and crush it in a mortar with my pestle. If you do not have a mortar and pestle, chop the garlic really fine and put in a bowl.

You can also try to crush the garlic with the back of a spoon to make it soft. Squeeze the juice from half a lemon or lime in a separate bowl.

Then we go on to the avocado. You can check to see if the avocado is ripe by first gently squeezing the skin of the avocado first.

If the skin gives a little you can remove the stem to see whether it is brown (over ripe do not use) or light coloured greenish (ready to use).

Half the avocado and spoon the contents in a bowl. Use a fork to squash the avocado finely. First add the garlic and mix together thoroughly before adding the lemon juice.

The lemon will prevent the avocado losing color and go dark but also gives it a fresh taste.

Start with half a tbsp of lemon and stir the mixture before adding more. Taste to see if the lemon is not overpowering the guacamole.

If you get a smooth mixture add a pinch of salt and an ample amount of black pepper to taste.

How to store guacamole

You can keep this healthy guacamole in the refrigerator for about a day in a ziplock bag as it will discolor easily. However you can keep it much longer if you store it in the freezer.

Use an ice cube maker to freeze the guacamole so you can easily take the amount of cubes that you need.

Tip: If you have half an avocado left and want to use it the next day put it in a glass jar and store in the fridge.
