Fruit in Chile

I might have said this before, but one of my favorite things about living in Chile is the cheap and delicious fruits and veggies. In the U.S. I never really noticed a fruit and and season relationship except for cherries mean Summer, other than that, I never really thought about it. Here in Chile its totally season based since we get it at a farmers market. We also have our own apricot tree, so that season lasted about 2 weeks while we stuffed our faces with fresh apricots, apricot ice cream, apricot crisp, and anything else we could conjure up. I remember talking about how I loved cheap oranges and made orange juice every day but lately there have been no oranges in our kitchen and two places I have asked for natural orange juice didn’t have it. Orange season over! Adios oranges, hello melons. I have been eating melon everyday for the last 2 weeks. Watermelon, cantaloupe, and honeydew melon. They are so ripe and juicy. I just cut up this cantaloupe and probably ended up eating a fourth of it in the process.

Abby - I literally ate an entire honeydew melon by myself over a period of 12 hours a few days ago. So delicious.

Juls - Oooh yes! South America and fruit- boy how I miss those tastes, flavors, aromas, juiciness and textures in the miserable UK where lots of fruit and much of the food stuff remind me of cardboard. In Valdivia the 3 of us bought a kilo of strawberries and a kilo of cherries, with intention of eating it after washing when we get back to our hostel (I always wash the fruit before I eat it). But there was nothing to wash, as we gulped the aromatic lot down on our way. They must have been just picked, so wonderfully fresh. And chirimoyas! No, no, don’t get me started…
