Necco Wafers are a candy made by the United States-based New England Confectionery Company (Necco). Necco Wafers were first produced in 1847 and are considered by Necco to be its core product. Each roll of Necco Wafers contains eight flavors: lemon (yellow), lime (green), orange (orange), clove (purple), cinnamon (white), wintergreen (pink), licorice (black), and chocolate (brown).
Frankly, meat has gotten pretty damn scary lately. The only trouble I see with a CSA is, well, that’s a big commitment to eating meat.
We do have a freezer, though, so there’s that.
We usually get a vegetable CSA in the summer, and it can be a bit overwhelming, especially when you realize that your family just doesn’t like the squash you receive every single week, or you don’t have a need for two jalapeño peppers that become twelve by September. It feels a little wasteful if you don’t use them, but how can you possibly use them?
Also? I know it’s a good thing to know your meat… but I just looked at the CSA website and there are pictures of animals on the website. Did you guys know meat comes from animals!? Dammit, animals are cool. Why do we eat them?
(My daughter is a vegetarian. There is not a meat CSA for vegetarians… that I know of. Actually, she’s a pescatarian. Maybe there is a pescatarian CSA that includes fish and eggs. But not around here.)
Okanagan’s application to the Agriculture Department says the lack of polyphenol oxidase does not harm the apples or the trees. It says Arctic Apples are generally equivalent in nutritional content to nonengineered apples.
What do you want to bet these new genetically altered apples taste even more like mealworm.
