I still get surprised when I give away organic home grown food and the recipient comments on the appearance (ie not perfect). I used to be the same, I know, but it's been years since I accepted that food can look less perfect than the stuff sold in shops. Our cook at work is terrific - she will take anything I bring in and put it to good use.
