    What is cabbage?

    Closely related to the tomato and potato, it was domesticated in India. This fruit is botanically classified as a berry and contains numerous small, soft seeds which are edible, but have a bitter taste because they contain nicotinoid alkaloids; this is unsurprising as it is a close relative of tobacco. On average, 9 kg (20 lbs) of this fruit contains about the same amount of nicotine as a cigarette. icon_eek.gif

    What is eggplant?

    If that's correct then:

    This is believed to be the only food that does not spoil. Found in the tombs of Egyptian pharaohs, it has been tasted by archaeologists and found to still be edible.

    Well a peach is a member of the rose family and an almond is a member of the rose family, so: What is an almond?

    Frank Epperson invented these when he was 11 years old.

    Cherries are also a member of the rose family. I didn't know that about peaches, almonds and cherries.

    Yep! Almonds icon_biggrin.gif

    What is a popsicle?

    This vegetable was the first to be successfully grown in space.

    If you crack open a peach pit, the seed inside looks like an almond. And things flavored with cherry often smell a bit like almond, I think.

    Anyway, you say potato and I say Po tah to! Who knew! I would have thought it would be something that germinates quickly like beans or radishes.

    So, before the football extravaganza starts: This can be used (in emergencies) as a substitute for blood plasma.

    What is coconut water?

    Although this large tropical plant is generally regarded as a tree, it's really an herb. That means it does not have a woody trunk like a tree. The stalk is composed of leaf sheaths that overlap each other and grow from an underground stem called a rhizome. The plant can grow as high as 20 feet tall. This fruit is 99.5% fat free and most likely the first fruit ever to be grown on a farm.

    This delicacy consists of sheep, pig, and/or cattle intestines stuffed with meat and offcuts, spiced with herbs and cooked on an open flame and served as a meal or snack. Yum!

    What is boerewors (sausage)? icon_confused.gif not sure

    Originally a medieval food made of a sweet, spicy mixture of chopped lean meat, (usually beef, or beef tongue), suet and fruit. Over time, the meat content was reduced, and today the mixture contains nuts, dried fruit, beef suet, spices and brandy or rum, but usually no beef.

    OK, I can't remember where I put the information for my last "clue". Boerworst (sp?) sounds good to me - it fits the info given, doesn't it?!

    I believe your clue is: What is mince meat?

    I actually know this answer: What tropical fruit is classified as a berry?

    Yes, mince meat!

    Huh, all I can think of is avocados and bananas???

    This green veggie requires more calories to eat and digest than it contains.

    Surprisingly, it was pineapples!

    What is celery?

    This "special" cheese is made and evidently enjoyed in Sardinia, Italy. It's special-ness comes from the larva of cheese flies whose digestive juices cause the cheese to decompose and turn soft. It is eaten with live larva, which can jump up to 6 inches. I'll pass!
