I gather from the comments on yesterday’s post that some of you would like the back story, so here it is.
Smokey likes to makes guacamole, and he got this in hopes it will keep the guacamole from turning dark. When he opened the package (eBay) he brought the little Baggie into my office and announced that the heroin had arrived.
Note: after Smokey had ordered the ascorbic acid, I saw somewhere online that spraying the surface of guac with cooking spray will keep it from turning dark. And Jen, one of yesterday’s commenters, recommends pouring a little milk over the top of the guac; pour it off again before serving.
