This TikTok Hack Will Keep Your Avocado Fresh

Two sliced avocados sit on a wooden plate.

We’ve all chopped an avocado only to find it brown what seems like 10 seconds later. Turns out, there’s an avocado hack on TikTok that keeps them fresh.

TikTok account, @marg13d, is the mastermind behind this hack, which she’s dubbed “Marg’s Dinosaur Egg Avocado Hack.” In the video, she showcases that not every avocado has to be used within the first 24 hours after it’s cut. But be warned: this method is a bit unconventional.

To keep the fruit fresh, Marg uses a spoon to remove the top and scoop out the amount of avocado she wants to use from the opening. This allows her to leave most of the skin intact. She then places the remainder in a plastic, resealable container.

Two days later, she opens it up to reveal a completely green avocado, and simply scoops out more with her spoon. Next, the video moves forward to a week after Marg first cut open the avocado, and she’s still using it!

Unfortunately, with this hack, you don’t get the satisfaction of slicing open an avocado to reveal two perfectly green halves. If longevity is what you need, though, this hack is your best bet.
