Cooking hack: How to keep avocado fresh for days and yes, it really works!

Avo lovers rejoice! There’s a super simple way to keep your avocados fresh and lasting longer.

Have you ever sliced open an avocado and then felt like you had to consume the whole thing, so the rest doesn’t go brown and get wasted? Well, this clever little hack is about to change your life.

TikTok user @marg13d has shared this simple kitchen trick with the world, making all of our lives a little better in the process.

Calling it "Marg’s Dinosaur Egg Avocado Hack” she explains that her way of consuming avocados can make them stay fresh for over a week.

Here’s how you can get the most out of your avo.

Simply slice off the very top of the avocado, not the length of it as you normally would.

Then spoon out the required amount of avocado through the hole at the top. Next, place the rest in a sealed container in the fridge. And there you have it – perfectly fresh avocado every time.

So why does it stay so fresh? Thanks to the skin around the avo flesh remaining intact, it’s able to retain it’s freshness and stay green.

Even in the one week old photos you can see that the avocado has only browned slightly and is still green throughout.

So there you have it. The next time you buy an avocado remember to give this handy little kitchen trick a try!
