Reading your comments on yesterday’s post: Extreme Couponing Tip: Weigh Produce & Save 10%, gave me a topic that deserved to be discussed here.
Is it okay to de-stem or take the tops off produce sold by the pound in order to reduce their weight?
Your comments got me really thinking on this. I will say that I’ve never ripped the top of a pineapple, and I don’t think I’ve ever cracked the stem off of a broccoli crown, BUT I always look for the crowns with the least stem and if I find a bruised banana in a bunch, I’ll rip it off and buy the rest. So where’s the line? I mean, I don’t think any of us are peeling our oranges before placing them in a bag, right? LOL! What do you think?
Now, I’m going to venture a guess that there are many of you who have strong opinions on the matter, so let me remind you to keep your comments respectful! Don’t throw tomatoes!
