Is it just that I am getting old and my senses are dulling or do a lot of the foods we by today not taste the same as they did a few years back. Take onions for example. They seem to be getting milder over the years. Are the people who control what is commercially grown decided that we all like toned down onions? I can’t seem to find my favorite habanera pepper sauce anymore. The ones I get now don’t seem to have that great habanera taste and punch. I used to get the one that
put out and it was perfect and a few
drops went a long way, but I can’t find it around here. I looked it up on their web-site and went to
the stores that were suppose to carry it but couldn’t find any. Maybe I need to do that again. Tabasco
We have bought a lot of vegetables that seem to be lacking in flavor. Have they all been genetically altered or are they picked too soon or are they stored, shipped, and handled poorly? The answer may be all of the above. Got to start going back to the farmer’s markets. There used to be one in
, the closest town to me of any size,
but have not seen it unless they moved it somewhere. I did a search ( http://search.ams.usda.gov/farmersmarkets/ ) on line and the closest one listed is in Conroe . Try it for your area, just type in your area
code and within how many miles. I had to
go to the “within 50 miles” setting to find any. Huntsville
Years ago, I used to go to a co-op that brought in fresh food once every month. So that everyone got what they wanted and that there wouldn’t be any waste, we had to put in our order a month in advance. Worked out real well and we got great food at a reasonable cost.
All this talk about food is making me hungry, so I guess I will go get a bite of something that still tastes great. I buy crunchy almond butter and it is really great tasting and very satisfying. It is made from real nuts, not some legume that grows under ground and breeds mold like peanuts. Now, you all have a great day and I hope you enjoy the food you eat.
