Has this ever happened to you...avocado

janniecooks | Oct 16, 201004:48 AM     12

I cut an avocado in half by holding it in the palm of my hand, rotating it to cut pole to pole around the seed so I can twist the halves apart, remove the seed and scoop out the avocado flesh. I almost always use my chef's knife because that's the knife I've used to cut up other vegetables and usually the avocado is the last thing I cut. Last night while cutting the avocado, the knife cut clear through the seed and into my fingers! I didn't think I was applying any more pressure than normal and I always cut avocados this way, so it really surprised (and scared) me. Plus, when I scooped out the flesh, inside the rind and on the outside of the flesh the avocado was kind of watery. Did I just have a bad avocado? The taste and texture of it were fine otherwise. Has this ever happened to you?
