    To keep it for longer duration and avoiding it from getting black you can leave the seed of a avocado in the prepared guacamole and than cover and refrigerate. It will last for 3 to 6 days.

    Can't go wrong with these ingredients although the sugar isn't necessary.  -  29 May 2014  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
