things I used to peel but don’t anymore and things I can’t believe people don’t peel

Things I used to peel but don’t anymore:

  • carrots- Thanks to chef and cook-book author-extraordinaire, Brenda Langton of Spoonriver who looked at me funny when I mentioned , “I taught a cooking class for my diabetic patients, and most had never chopped an onion or peeled a carrot.”
“You don’t have to peel carrots, especially if they are organic,” she said. Liberated!
I was googling a picture of “carrots” to go with this post, and “Carrot-top” (for my overseas friends, a not very funny comedian from the 1980’s) popped up. Enjoy the flashback!
  • mushrooms: don’t ask me why, my mom did it when I was growing up, so I thought that’s what you did…
  • asparagus: again, thanks mom…
Things I can’t believe people don’t peel (OK, I could only come up with one, it’s Friday, folks!)
  • kiwis
