    At a cooking class I once took the chef mentioned that if you rinse the diced avocado with water it will stop the oxidation. Try it, so far it has worked for me.

    Tell me when a recipe calls for lightly packed or firmly packed brown sugar, how does one determine light and firmly packed? I now use a scale, but I’m not sure if the grams are for the lightly packed or firmly packed brown sugar.

    Thank you,
