Apples; domestic, imported, apple pie . . .
On Wednesday I had got a huge wish for apple pie. We had no apples so I sent Lefa on a mission. There is a garden next to ours where are plenty of apple trees. The owner, an elderly man, does not pick them. Most of the apples just rotten away. I told Leif to please, please go pinch some apples.
Yesterday I made the pie.
Last time in the shop I noticed the huge difference in domestic apples and imported apples from New Zealand. Normally I probably wouldn’t even have noticed there are apples from New Zealand. This time the sign caught my attention immediately because we know a family who recently moved there. Imagine . . . the apples come all the way from New Zealand to Finland. WOW ! The most surprising thing is that the New Zealand apples are less than half the price from the domestic ones.
How crazy is that ?
We have more than enough of apples in Finland this time of the year. Most of the apples will rot and get thrown away. Please sell them a bit cheaper. Why not import less apples this time of the year. Import them during the winter.
Just my humble opinion. By the way who am I to know about these things ; )
The apples from New Zealand actually looked more delicious than the domestic ones. I will buy some next time to taste the difference 🙂
