I haven’t always been a fruit lover. In a house with ten kids it seemed like there was always some kind of fruit spilled and then smashed on the kitchen floor. I can remember several times being the lucky one to actually step on the smashed grape.
Probably until after I got married, fruit and I were still not friends. But a couple of years ago I found a whole new love for it. Now my family and I eat tons of fruit and literally go through pounds of grapes a week.
