where do baby corns come from?   all joking aside, are they just regular corn that's picked before it's grown?

Whenever a colleague says "Can I ask a stupid question?", I respond, "Can you ask any other kind?". Just one of the reasons I am universally loved.

Bzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.   Chemicals volatizing from the salt because of temperature? (Guessing.)

Oh, like trying to get an avocado not to discolor. I don't have a vacuum sealer, but I'll see what I can do with a ziplock. Thanks!

Probably won't do it. Then again, I've never vacuum sealed a lime, as that would mean setting up the vacuum sealer for something I can get on the corner for like 33 cents. It only comes out of it's hiding place for bigger projects.

My "trick" with avos (and it only works for a day or two) if I have a half to keep, is to keep the half with the pit in it, and wrap in plastic wrap, making sure the wrap is right against the exposed flesh of the avo.

A tiny amount of ascorbic acid is the cure for avocado issues, and it's good for you.

P.s. I haven't tried vacuum with plain old limes but yuzu and makrut limes seem to keep their color. In fairness this is with a chamber sealer that doesn't try to suck all the juice out.

I do this, too. But sometimes I just get the ziplock pretty tight around the avocado. Limes are more of a "problem" because I hang onto a lime for much longer than an avocado

Or lemon, when I remember to do that.

Normally I would agree, but the author is referring to a colleague, so I think she gets a pass. If I wrote a bylined piece referring to a member of my editorial team, I would use their first name.
