Creme anglaise is technically more correct than custard. I was shocked that after typing it in it appeared as custard in the box.

You shouldn't be shocked, they are the same thing and it was called custard first so that's the ingredient.

Any vegetable or meat even can be a pickle (pickle refers to how the food is prepared and preserved)... you need to change the clue somewhat. A cucumber which is pickled is a gherkin!
+1
level 76
Jun 2, 2015
All pickled cucumbers are not gherkins. Only the smaller ones are called gherkins or cornichons. There is a variety called a burr gherkin or West Indian gherkin which grows on a vining plant and is similar to a cucumber but it's not the same. The fruit is shorter and rounder, and usually has prickles on it. I've grown both.

I agree with CH5443 (I knew your father CH5442)...... Anything can be pickled i.e. submerged in vinegar, usually spiced. Pickled Onions are a great example (unless someone sits next to you in the cinema with a bottle full and a long fork)

CH5442 would probably be CH5443's older sibling.

Can't believe I missed cherry. ....wait, I hate cherries, so I totally forgot they had pits in them (all the fruits I was thinking of did NOT start with C. Peaches, dates, nectarines, plums...). Okay, now I can believe I missed cherry. Also, I couldn't spell challa by one damned letter.

Go find some fresh ones now. You are missing out because obviously you have only eaten cooked ones that some else has slaved over. Fresh cherries off the tree are heaven!

No, I'm saying that usually they are NOT pitted. There's a cherry tree in my garden but even the ones bought from shops usually have stones still in them

The story I heard (perhaps apocryphal?) of their creation was that they were made to mock Turkish Muslim armies and the crescent on their flags and commemorate Christian Viennese victory over the invading Turks, Vienna marking the deepest penetration Muslim armies made into Europe.
Ironically, croissants are super popular in Saudi Arabia today.

I think you'll struggle to find anyone that would refer to a crumpet as a cake. Can you change the clue to at least say "has to be toasted before being eaten" or something like that?
