Apple Season

Apples are in season and as most other Americans we are enjoying the hell out of them. The other morning I spied this apple in our house fruit bowl.

You know, this all seems very familiar. This apple was much like the others except that it didn't come from a nearby California farm, but some distant Chilean orchard.

While I tend to be a tad outspoken about food and some people think I'm off the deep-end, I think we can all agree that something is awry here. To some of us the very idea of a Chilean apple in California is ridiculous, but I imagine we can all agree that one of these months old apples from the southern hemisphere sitting next to fresh California apple is preposterous.
