Ketchup was originally a Chinese Fish Brine Sauce in the 17th century. The British encountered it in Malaysia, and made a mushroom-based sauce out of it in the 18th century.

Vindaloo, the Indian dish, comes from the port city of Goa, where Portuguese traders introduced the locals to a stewed pork dish with wine (vinha) and garlic (alho), named “meat with wine and garlic,” or “carne de vinha d’alhos.” Eventually the wine became replaced with vinegar, and taboos elsewhere in India against pork eventually caused the dish to branch out to all sorts of different meats.

 

Apples are not true to seed. Meaning that if you plant the seed you won’t get the same variety of the seed that it came from. The only way to mass produce a particular variety is to graft a branch of a known variety into the trunk of another apple tree. Then that branch starts producing the variety.

 

Oregano is from the Greek meaning “mountain of joy.

Frank,

Butter can also be white based on the milk/cream it is made from. My shop buys a lot of farm fresh milk for ice cream. We use some of the cream to make butter. for a while, it was completely white because the cows only got hay but we recently had good rain and now that they got fresh grass the butter is yellow.

#8 They were probably invented after defeating the Ottoman’s siege of Vienna. Therefore, there are more memorabilia than sole „propaganda“…
