There is a bumper crop of avocados this year so guacamole can become your summer staple. I loved the way Grace used her time-worn mortar and pestle to mix this recipe together. Keep a light hand if you use yours. The trick to a great guacamole is perfectly ripe avocados. Let them be the star and don't add too many other ingredients.
- Cut avocados in half. Remove seed and add some lime or lemon drops to prevent oxidation. Scoop out avocado from the peel, put in a mixing bowl.
- Using a fork, mash the avocado. Add the chopped onion, coriander, lime or lemon, salt and pepper and mash just a bit more.
- Leaving the pit of the avocado in the middle of the guacamole also helps prevent oxidation.
