Ugly Apples and Freeocal Foods

We are fortunate enough to live near by an orchard that is half organic and half conventional. The organic trees are harvested first, and we are lucky enough to have permission to access the orchards and gather up the fruit that is not picked.

What's better than free and local food?

Can I coin a new word - freeocal?

But there is one sad thing about organic produce - nobody like ugly food! There are some delicious, yummy, tasty, crunchy, nutritious, nectar of the Gods apples left there just for us because they are too ugly for sale at the local markets.

Poor poor apples - but lucky lucky us!
