I just got back from a trip. On a whim, I brought along a small avocado and made guacamole.

It turned out really well and I thought you might be interested.

Skinned and pitted the avocado, diced up a bit of onion and put it all in a small zip lock bag. Added a bit of olive oil.

Used my fingers to squish it all up, cut a corner of the bag and then piped the contents onto crackers.

It was awesome. Fresh and sweet. A real treat that did not need any refrigeration.

How did you keep it looking pleasant? Without lemon juice spritzer avocados look icky after peeled.

It is all in the timing.

As in, as soon as it is made, THAT is the time to eat it.

We made Guacamole on a kayak trip on Lake Superior a few years back...
(no real weight restrictions on a sea kayak trip... 8) )

We used a dry, pre-packaged seasoning mix - all you added were the avocados and some lemon juice. The results were excellent.

The challenge is transporting the avocados without bruising them...

I think you hit the nail on the head... the other thing is that I like tortilla chips with my guac, and those take up too much space in the barrel for my liking.

I make Guacamole all the time at home, out of 100% fresh ingredients. It's really easier than buying the package as most people have all the ingredients in their refrigerator. I mean I've got it down to the point that I can make Guac in less than 2 minutes. I use lime instead of lemon. A bottle of lime juice works nearly as well, especially when the limes start looking kinda shakey at the grocery.

I love making fresh guacamole in the summer time. I also use a little lime juice to give it a little refreshing kick. Guacamole is almost impossible to store, I usually eat mine right then and there.

At least they double as good fire starters. Try lighting one.
