Eating moldy fruit

Don't you hate it when you're eating a bowl of fruit, say raspberries, blueberries, grapes, etc. and you pick one up without looking and as soon as you bite into it, all you taste is mold? BLEH!!! I just did that with a red seedless grape..... turns you off to the rest of the bowl, doesn't it?

I bet the title made you wonder.

We had three containers of raspberries (half a pound?) that I didn't eat thinking they were reserved for something. Apparently everybody else thought that too, because after a week they were all getting moldy and had to be thrown out.


I was guessing you were discussing a new moldy fruit diet where that's all you eat.

Back a 100 years or so ago, before I decided to live my religeous beliefs, I may have sworn at rotten meat.

I sure would lose a lot of weight on a diet like that!

i figured you were literally eating moldy fruit when i read your title!

i don't like finding mold on fruit. or bread or cheese. yuck. i throw my food out if i find mold.
i try to rationalize- "it's only pencillin."
sometimes rationalization doesn't work.

TRULY! (except for grapes, which can be toxic to dogs) I feed my dogs over-ripe fruit all the time... bananas, blueberries, papaya, mango, peach... they're great kitchen "helpers"

But, yes.... a "bad" berry, scallop, etc will TOTALLY ruin for me for a loooong while...
