Re: Ciel

LOL.  I used to work with a filipino male nurse who was always trying to get me to eat jackfruit and ube combos.  His uncle owned the Manilla Groceries Store here and the worst thing he tried to get me to eat was shrimp heads with their long tentacles floating in the broth and their eyes looking at me.

Also... I LOVE those big avocados! The Choquette variety is rounder, the Hall has a pointy end, they are lighter in flavor, kind of sweet, and the seeds are much easier to start, I've found. This 'avozilla' claims to be a unique new one all descended from a single tree called Carla. But I have been eating the Hall and Choquette for years.

Charlie and I saw a jackfruit at the Asian market, and we agreed it should have googly eyes and be taped to a skateboard and wheeled around the neighborhood like a pet.

I have avocados and they seem as hard as bullets. Peaches taste like sweet wood. Pears I have had for a month and I know they will not ripen, look pretty though. I am afraid tinned fruit is 3 times as cheap and edible.   Lucky you.

Some of the produce I walk by in the supermarket amazes me by its size. I wonder how anyone, even a group of people, can consume them.

Yes, the food was better with no pesticides and when it was grown without being genetically modifie. For sure.

Flavors were sharper when the fruit was eaten as we picked it...

I will not consider the fact that my tastebuds may no longer be as sensitive.
