loot-saving fruit

Anyone who has had the pleasure of visiting a supermarket in Japan will be well aware that the cost of fruit can sometimes be a bit on the expensive side.

A recent trip to my local food-selling establishment had this shiny selection on sale for 5,000 yen (about 25 British quids), each piece of fruit with its own protective padding to stop it getting damaged should it be necessary to use it as an offensive weapon.




For some people, the prohibitive cost of fruit here means forgoing its healthy benefits.

However, if you're prepared to look around a bit, you can find some real bargains. Like this rather inviting selection of oranges I stumbled upon recently, which turned out to make a really tasty fruit salad - once I'd picked out the grit of course....



Free fruit. Spoon and bowl included.
