Feeling Fruity


How come I used to like apples but now I don't? Why do oranges bring me out in a rash? Pineapples are too difficult, bananas are boring and pomegranates are only in the shops for 27 minutes once a year (I know this is true as I have timed it). Strawberries are flown in from outer space, I've got raspberries in the garden so there's no point buying them in the shops and I've never liked pears. What's a girl to eat to get her five portions of fruit and veg a day?

I was very disappointed when I was recently told that Opal Fruits don't actually count as a "fruit"...

I've always thought that a quince sounded quite appealing - even although I've no idea what they look like.

Yeah - shame about Opal Fruits. Same with Fruit Salads - I always thought they were made from... yeah, yeah... you get the idea.

Kiwi fruit. Use a sharp spoon and throw away the hairy bits.

Fruit? That's hairy? That can't be right.

I've had a run on grapefruit lately, as they have been delicious. Bananas may be boring, but at least it doesn't take much effort to eat one. That is, if they don't have brown bits. I liked apples too as a kid, but don't care for them now, unless they are in a pudding. Do you get Asian pears in Britain? They are wonderful.
