Guacamole
I decided to try some guac.. got the small containers which have guac, vinegar, jalapeno in it..

I don't eat much.. opened the little container.. then put it in a baggie and twist tied it.

Next time I went to use some, the outer part of the guac where I had taken from was darker color.

Is this normal? I scooped away the darker part and took the bright green part to spread on my sandwich.

Lights went dark.... ..... ......

There are tons of tricks to keep it from darkening, which is normal. Just google “how to keep guacamole from darkening” and you’ll see tons of options. Some may work better than others, but I have found that putting it in a container, covering it in about 1/2” of water..when you’re ready to eat it again, open it, pour out the water, and it’s good to go.

Essentially it’s exposure to oxygen that turns it dark.

Thnak you. So nothing wrong in eating it if it darkens, then... I'll try the water next time.
