Step by step recipe

Stage 1
The avocado stone stops the flesh turning brown : Photo of step #1 A puree is made with an avocado cut into pieces and blended.
Stage 2
The avocado stone stops the flesh turning brown : Photo of step #2 The purée is divided between 3 ramekins: on the right plain, in the centre with the stone, and on the left with a pinch of vitamin C.
Stage 3
The avocado stone stops the flesh turning brown : Photo of step #3 A few hours later...
Stage 4
The avocado stone stops the flesh turning brown : Photo of step #4 Unfortunately the stone has had no effect.
Stage 5
The avocado stone stops the flesh turning brown : Photo of step #5 The vitamin C, on the other hand, has acted as an effective anti-oxidant.

Conclusion

False: So there is no point leaving the avocado stone in the prepared dish. Vitamin C, and so the lemon juice added to guacamole is much more effective.
And to drink?: We'll prepare an avocado purée and share it between 3 ramekins: 1 plain, 1 with the avocado stone, 1 with a little vitamin C added. They will be left for several hours to see what happens to the different dishes of purée.
