avocado warning

As well as an excellent recipe for shoulder of lamb I came away from Easter lunch with the family with the following interesting fact.

Avocados are the most dangerous of all fruit.

Apparently it's the preparation which is so hazardous. Having halved and stoned the fruit there are those among us who tend to cup the it in the palm of a hand, using a knife the slice the flesh ... you can guess what happens next.

My own sad tale involves using a knife to get the stone out of a baby avocado on Friday night while weakened by running and yoga. I won't go into detail, luckily She is quite good at first aid.

The moral of the story - avocados - tasty but deadly. Don't be an idiot, get the stone out with a teaspoon and use a board to slice them.
