An Apple a Day
Quite a while ago I decided not to buy fruits and vegetables which come from outside of Germany. I don't want to support the big industrial conservatories for all kind of fruits and vegetables either in Spain, Netherlands or South America, as well as the long transportation ways through Europe.
So I often buy local fruits and veggies on our local market. That means pears, apples, gherkin, tomatoes (in the summer), onions, potatoes.
As I am often limited to apples as the local fruit that is available the whole year I became a little foodie in this area. I really like the different tastes of our local apples, no matter if big or small, sour or sweet and I don't miss other exotic fruits at all.
