I'd rather have

Cantaloupe or Honey dew melon?

Pears or apples?

Raspberries or Blueberries?

Peach or Plum?

Fresh fruit or canned/frozen fruit?

Are there fruits you like to grill?

What fruit(s) do you have in the house most often?

I'd rather have

Cantaloupe or Honey dew melon? ***not a fan of either***

Pears or apples? ***love both, but pears would top the list***

Raspberries or Blueberries? ***again, love both, but blueberries would be at the top***

Peach or Plum? ***again love both and in this case couldn't pick one***

Fresh fruit or canned/frozen fruit? ***prefer fresh, but like frozen because it keeps***

Are there fruits you like to grill? ***Never grilled fruit***

What fruit(s) do you have in the house most often? ***Bananas and almost always have frozen blueberries***

Hi to you too Hilary! Berries here are expensive most times of the year but coming into seaon soon so will be able to go berrie picking and pay a lot less than what's in the stores. I do have a few blackberries bushes but not enough to use in cooking, enough to just pick a few while in the yard and snack on. I love grilled pineapples and want to try grilling peaches next. A nice warm peach half with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, yum!

That cake sounds very good! I only buy oranges when dh or the kids request them, they'd sit in the fruit draw and go bad if I bought them all the time. Apples and bananas are almost always in the house. Ds is waiting for cherries, still have a few weeks at least before the stores start carrying them.

Morning Susanne! I'm not a big fan of pears but dd and dh like them. I do like cooked pears but don't have them often. Looks like we all have bananas in the house! Most kids love them and I like them on my cereal. Funny ds doesn't like them, he loved them as a toddler but won't eat them now.

Hey Kim can I do a copy paste of Hilary's answers. Mine are so similar. Rofl. I do buy strawberries but other berries frozen for cooking due to the price. I do make a few desserts with canned fruit. On the Barbie I love pineapple, yum. If not fresh then the canned slices that are sliced thinly so heat through fast. Bananas were off the shopping list for ages with the crop being wiped out by mother nature, so I am really happy to see them back at a decent price.

I love granny smith apples for cooking, make a mean strudel with them, apple pie too. They are wonderful made into apple sauce to go with pork. I don't really eat fresh apples often.

What frozen fruits do you find good, apart from the blueberries that I already buy.
