  • Avocado flesh is well known for browning rapidly once cut or mashed (p. 269), a problem that can be remedied by adding an acidic ingredient (often lime juice) or by airtight wrapping with a plastic film that blocks oxygen effectively (polyvinylidene chloride, alias saran, is far more effective than polyethylene or PVC).
