Sweet Potatoes and Cherries!

Thursday, July 11, 2013

I just came back from a local night market (I live in Malaysia). I managed to get 2 nice small sweet potatoes to steam for my snack tomorrow. It only cost me RM1.50!

Then I managed to get a few cherries (about a standard small punnet) for RM5. Cherries are expensive here because they are air flown from the US.

Altogether, it cost me RM6.50, that like USD2 plus, I guess.

Sometimes, I wish I could go to the US during cherry season and gorge myself! I've heard they were cheap in the US, which part tho?

  Cherries are not cheap in New England either. We used to have a neighbor with 2 large cherry trees in her yard and let us pick till are hearts were content. Used to make jam and pies and anything I could put them in.

Thanks for the blog a good one Deni emoticon

    Sweet cherries here in CA were 2.99 a lb and ranier cherries are 5.99 a lb, but that was a sale price. They're normally a dollar or two more.
Regardless, I love cherries too and eat them all the time they are in season. emoticon

    Cherries aren't cheap in the state I live in. In my opinion, things aren't cheap anymore be it here or there.

    Lots of cherries are grown in Washington state, but I haven't noticed that they're cheap unless you buy boxes of them to earn a quantity discount.

    I love cherries (and sweet potatoes too) but they are not very cheap here in the Midwest USA. At least the dark sweet cherries aren't. We grow the tart cherries which are great for baking but not so much for snacking.
