Omnivore - Peaches that suck
I'm pissed yet again. I just returned from dropping the usual fortune at Whole Foods. Once again, I allowed myself to be suckered by the beautiful displays of mainly organic fruit. "Oh," I said to myself, as usual, "what's an extra dollar a pound for extra-delicious, healthy peaches? Here, take my $11 for a handful of peaches. Please!"
Then I decided, on the way home, to eat one of the peaches. Just like last week's purchase here, it was mealy, tasteless and watery. Meanwhile, the much less expensive peaches at Publix taste a zillion times better.
What is the deal?
Whoops: I just read Adina's piece below. I guess I should have gotten the book before I went to Whole Foods.
