Let me hear you say, "I heart pesticides!" You would if you saw little creepy crawlers while you were innocently cleaning your veggies from the market. I know it's natural and all (they live in the dirt...helloooo!) but I had a series of ick/shudder/heeby jeebs moments while cleaning my Saturday morning market finds.
And this is why I will always wash my produce thoroughly. Don't go thinking grocery stores are any better. I've seen what appeared to be maggots on perfectly good bell peppers at a store that will remain unnamed but rhymes with Shandmark.
|And yes, those are gloves I'm wearing. I always wear them when cleaning (food or otherwise) and I couldn't have been more relieved to have them on this fine Saturday.|
