How to prepare guacamole

To prepare guacamole, Mexican tradition requires the use of molcajate, a mortar similar to the one our grandparents used to prepare pesto.

The acid juice, in addition to flavor the sauce, serves to prevent the guacamole from changing color (the pulp of the fruit turns black due to oxidation, the acidic lime juice inhibits this process).

2) Add the other ingredients (salt and pepper) and mix thoroughly.

In the original recipe, for every 4 avocados you will need the juice of 2 limes, a pinch of salt and plenty of pepper. To make the guacamole taste more intense, it is possible to add - compatible with Mexican gastronomic traditions - 2 equally crushed jamberries.
