I need to buy produce soon and while I was looking in the fridge for fresh veggies for last night's supper, I found 4 grapefruit and 5 clementines. They did not look so pretty on the outside anymore, kind of bruised and wrinkled, and I wondered if they were still good.
So I got out a knife and cutting board and ten minutes later, I had a nice bowl of peeled and diced grapefruit and a bowl of peeled clementines. They taste great and look so much more appealing to eat when they are ready-to-eat than how they looked starting to shrivel in the crisper drawer.
I still need to go shopping soon, but now we have fresh fruit to eat today when I thought we didn't.
