About time! Wonky veg

At last! It's immoral throwing away perfectly good veg just because of the way it looks.

"Sainsbury's has relaxed its rules on the cosmetic appearance of fresh produce after one of the worst harvests in decades
Knobbly carrots, wonky spuds, bent courgettes and discoloured cauliflowers will return to supermarket shelves after one of the worst growing seasons farmers have experienced in decades.

The driest March in 59 years, followed by the wettest June and autumn storms and flooding have reduced British fruit and vegetable harvests by more than 25% and left supermarkets unable to source their regular shaped, blemish-free produce."
