The Great Winter Fruit Funk

February 25, 2011

So delicious, I could eat my screen.

I’ve been in a funk and I think I found the source…for months, I’ve been suffering through Winter Fruit. I’m over-paying and under-enjoying the mediocre fruit that us Midwesterners are forced to buy during these cold months. I know it’s coming…I know Spring is just around the corner, and that means a Summer’s worth of amazing, succulent berries and citrus.

But right now, all I can do is dream…and keep buying the “meh” fruit that’s in the stores. Somebody, somewhere, do you know where the good fruit is!? Because I can hardly stand to buy another batch of not-quite-so-sweet red grapes at $3 a pound.

So what are your strategies to overcome the Great Winter Fruit Funk?

    I usually stick with frozen over the winter, so lots of smoothies around here in winter. Will only by fresh fruit on occasion- just too risky. But last week I did by a few apples, pears, strawberries and oranges from SNS and they were all really good. Made a fruit salsa with everything but the oranges.

    Yeah, I’m with you on the frozen, but I’m a bit smoothie-d out this week. Just…can’t….drink…one…more! I bought a bunch of fruit from Costco this week…the raspberries and raspberries are pretty good, but the grapes and strawberries…bland.

    That’s twice someone said Shop N Save, so I’ll have to pick some up next week!

    Costco pineapples are always delicious and only 2.89. We also buy bags of Cuties from SNS and they are (mostly) good, seedless, and easy to peel.
