OMG!!! I am so happy today. My favourite asian store-which always gets its deliveries on Thursdays had some fantastic finds today. Imagine-persimmons in April! They're from Brazil and they're organic. Here's the list of my motherload: Persimmons, cherimoyas (I have to ripen them-I use my old bread box, lined with a paper bag and placed on a sunny counter), longans, jujubes, dragon fruit, plantains, pomelos, plus my regular stash of organic, fair trade bananas! Excuse me while I go jump for joy:))
The picture on the counter, near the window is my favourite foods. Starting at about 11 o'clock and going clockwise, you can see my cherimoyas in my breadbox, the package of jujubes, papaya, pomelo, dragonfruit, persimmons and finally the longans in the baskets.
All four pictures show the quantity of grocery I did-it should last the family (5, including the dogs who are mad about bananas) about 4-5days.
