The Interwebs has a huge iSad today for Steve Jobs has uploaded himself to elsewhere.
While I am not a member of the club, I know that there are many of you who have been deeply touched and inspired by Steve over the years.
As a foodPerson, I also know what we do to console ourselves, or celebrate the lives of those who touched us. We eat.
Often special, ceremonial foods. Favorite foods to honor people. Something appropriate for the occasion.
The obvious thing to eat for Steve is an Apple.
It was not only the name of his company, it was his favorite food. (Unless you count the sushi that was the sole exception to his veganism.)
So if you're going to miss Steve, eat an apple. Locally grown, organic, from a farmer's market, as Steve would, or picked up at the local Wallyworld, I don't care. Just eat one.
It's affordable, near effortless, good for your health - and the Apple industry in my home state of Washington - and Steve would approve.
The tradition of my childhood plants trees in memory of people we love. If you have a garden, you might want to plant him a tree. An apple tree, of course.
