The best way to get a great tasting guacamole is to use the freshest ingredients and prepare it just before you plan to eat it so that no discolouration occurs. If you do need to make it in advance cover with cling film pressing down onto the surface of the guacamole rather than just over the bowl to make sure no air can get to it. Its oxidization that causes it to go brown, just using this trick will keep it green in the fridge for days. Guacamole is best served simply with tortilla chips or with cheesy nachos!
