I pulled an oldish container of blueberries out of the fridge the other day and wondered what to do with them. Even when I brought them home "fresh," they didn't taste like much. But I didn't want to waste them, so I decided to try throwing them in a pan with a splash of maple syrup and cooking on medium for 10 or so minutes. Hallelujah. The flavor returned and they were sheer perfection atop a dish of plain yogurt.
I have some cut up mango in the fridge that's been sitting there a couple of days too long for the same reason as the blueberries. I'll have to see if it works with mango as well, but I have my doubts.
Moral of the story: eat local. But I'm afraid I wouldn't find any fruit in season in Denmark if I went that route. And I love bananas and oranges, but aren't we all getting a little tired of them by this point in the season?
