I was just reminded of this while responding to a post on the site.
Want to ruin fish for me? Top it with a mango salsa. Want to ruin salad? Put apples, strawberries, grapes, peaches, raisins, etc. in it. I don't want a sweet fruit compote next to or a sweet fruit glaze on my chicken. No thank you.
To me fruit is something that you have on the side maybe with breakfast or in a fruit salad or in a morning smoothie. I love fresh strawberries with whipped cream for dessert. And I love fruit pies for dessert. To me fruit is either on its own or in a pie. I DON'T want it mixed into my food. (and by fruit I mean what we typically think of as fruit not the actual biological definition of fruit)
Does anyone else have this issue? I don't know anyone who is bothered by it so I'm starting to think that it is very strange.
