With all the hot, muggy weather we've been having, I did a double-take when I came upon a display of apples on Monday at Whole Foods in Paramus.
They were organic and they had traveled long distances: Pink Lady from Chile, Braeburn from New Zealand (photo) and other varieties, all $2.49 a pound. I selected two from Chile and the New Zealand Braeburn, and the trio worked out to about $1 each.
Of course, it's winter down under, so apples make perfect sense there. And, I have to admit, one of the Chilean apples tasted pretty good with a couple of slices of Swiss cheese as a mid-afternoon snack.
