Apparently, organic now means that you can eat industrial, highly processed food that no longer contains its natural nutrients, and pay a hefty premium for the "priviledge."


Another drool-worthy tomato :)

Lately, "organic" certainly doesn't have the same meaning for me (local, fresh, field grown); especially after seeing this: I filed it under "Things I'd Rather Not Know" :P



re: Organic Kellog's
Have you read Michael Pollan's Omnivore's Dilemna, yet? He weaves a great argument and his distinctions between local/sustainable and big-organic are clear.


I grew up on cereal too -- loved hte little boxes and adding milk when we traveled. But the idea of organic rice krispies is almost as odd as the idea of organic rice krispie treats. . . . Hmmm.


what's really weird is that they show the rice krispies
in a field of . . . wheat.


Denise, it certainly seems that folks have identified "organic" with big mark up--but the costs to the environment are still huge.

Mikaela, thanks of the link!

Charlotte, Pollan's book is on the nightstand now. I almost met him a couple of weeks ago when he was in the Hudson Valley--but I couldn't stay for his talk.

Patrick--the wheat enveloping the rice krispies is the perfect illustration of the disconnect going on there--thanks for pointing it out!


Isn't that bizzare? I started noticing these odd 'organic' products back when they started doing doritoes. It's crazy! I can't understand what 'organic' means to people who would consider buying these products. Wasn't the whole idea to make life for everyone (the earth, the dog next door, cows down the street, giraffes in africa, AND people!) healthier? Seems like everyone is as confused as I am...

Hello from Belgium. Mm, those buttermilk biscuits look really good, as do many other things in this blog. I would also like to say that here (in Brussels) I was able to buy an organically grown tomato called "Rose de Bern", looking really a pinkish red, hence the name. The taste is really good, I have it raw between toasted falafel bread pockets and feta cheese. I will read up on your cooking in the future! Best wishes.
