    I have made this once and it is a delicious guacamole. However, unlike most guacamole recipes I have made, this one uses no lime or lemon juice, and therefore it does not keep as well. My advice therefore is to prepare this as close as possible to when you plan to serve and enjoy it.

      Hello Elaine, the public tv stations are currently in pledge weeks so that could be why you’re not seeing the show on Saturdays. Season 9 should return as regularly scheduled on Dec. 26. Remember that if you have Amazon Prime, you can stream seasons 3 to 9 over their platform. Thanks for your patience 😉
