Sorry, Neil, I have to agree with you again, I know how you hate that!
I have stopped buying apples at the grocery stores and I'm not talking about organic ones, which I never put out the money for, because those apples were making me sick, even when I ran them under a faucet and wiped them off. So, thanks for reminding me, I think. How can you tell organic foods are pesticide free?
Hold your horses, O food Puritans - what if they use pesticide or chemical fertilizers? I read nothing about their being certified organic by the FDA, or even by the grower (some do so w/o paying for expensive certification).
