Tamara have you tried rice milk?
LOL, trw! You know...I haven't tried the rice milk. My dd isn't crazy about milk as it is, but when I cook I try to use all organic dairy. I will buy the rice milk here and see what she thinks.
You really have been very helpful. I am just glad to see that organics are readily available.
One other thing-I don't think this is the right thread, but why are the avocados so expensive there? I thought they were native fruit to the island?!?
Do figs grow there?
Avacados and mangos are the zucchini and tomatos of the states. They are so plentiful in their seasons that people who have trees are begging frieds and neighbors to take some. Same with carambola. lol. I think the island Avacados taste fine, they are the larger, smooth light green type.
Even the local avocados are more expensive in the groceries here than they are in the states. And believe it or not, mangos are less expensive in Oregon supermarkets than in our markets. You can usually get them pretty cheap from the roadside stands when they are in season.
Tamara, I apologize for being so dense, but what is a dh and a dd?
carambola....that's star fruit, right? They used to grow on the island I lived on growing up. I never liked them though, they were too sour. In the grocery stores here in the States, they are bland, not sour nor sweet. Do any of you prepare carambola in any dishes? I think they make a fun addition to a fruit salad, purely because of their shape.
Also, how does passion fruit grow in STT? or does it? I like the purple kind best.
