Apples and Pears

Posted By Kerri

We receive a weekly vegetable box and have done for about six weeks, sometimes it’s been good, sometimes not so good. When we originally decided to sign up for one, we did so because we thought it would help us to eat more fruit and vegetables and also give us the opportunity to eat more interesting and seasonal produce. Another reason is our local supermarket is not particularly great when it comes to fresh produce, there’s plenty of ready-meals and the freezer section is huge but sadly, that’s at the expense of the fresh fruit and vegetable aisle. We also thought it would help us be more creative with our cooking.

The first couple of weeks went well and we used everything up, albeit some of it became soup but, from what I’ve heard, soup is your best friend when you receive a vegetable box, so that’s ok. Then we found we were receiving too many potatoes and onions, that’s ok too though because you can temporarily eliminate them from your box – this however leads to other problems, namely they don’t tell you what you’re going to get instead of the potatoes and onions and you find yourself faced with four different types of leafy, green vegetables…we were definitely creative that week 🙂

So, this week we’ve had some rather strange looking apples and pears delivered. Stephen said they looked woody. I thought they looked too brown. They’re still in the fruit bowl. I’m trying to be “creative” and look for interesting things to do with them. I’ll let you know how I get on.

    When it got to the end of the week and they were still sitting in the fruit bowl, I decided to turn them into a pie. I didn’t get round to it though so sent them to the big allotment in the sky 🙁
