We just got back from a marvelous Easter break. We rented a holiday home 5 hours from home and spent 4 fabulous days in the sunshine going for long walks, eating great food and relaxing.
The garden was chockers with fruit trees and given the unseasonably warm weather the feijoas were already falling off the tree.
We grabbed a few and offered them to the boys. Joe has always loved them - Max and Roy not so much. Roy tried one and raved about it. He said that it was the slightly tart tangy of a normal feijoa but combined with a lovely sweetness. It convinced Max he should try one too.
He took one bite and said "nah, still tastes like a feijoa". Then his face changed and he said "but you're right it is much sweeter, can I try a bit more?"
Today he's taking 2 for lunch and I had to limit dessert portions to only 2 each last night ...
Why am I waffling on about this here? Because it is important that we do give foods a try over and over again. What we are not sold on one year we may like more the following. Also food can taste so markedly different dependent on how it's prepared, how it's cooked and in this case how little it's traveled from the tree :)
Judith is passionate about good food and is even more passionate about enabling other people to enjoy the wide variety of fresh food available today.
