I tried to buy local today. I wanted a tin of apricots. Not a big deal I thought as we live near an apricot area. The first tin said 'made in China', the second tin said 'product of Australia. The third tin which I thought was a local brand said ' product of South Africa.' I began to lose the plot about here! Two tins left....
One said product of Malaysia - didn't even know they grew the things AAAAAARGH
And the last tin said........ wait for it.........'Product of Chile'.
I gave it up and went apricotless to the checkout.
I think the shelves are telling me to go bottle my own!
Next year I think we'll be making a short trip to the orchard zone - about an hour away at most.
