The fennel looks like kohlrabi. Only one I missed. Interesting what things are called in different countries. Good to know.

Fennel has fronds or fern-like leaves. Kohlrabi is in the same family as cabbage and has cabbage-like leaves. I grow both, but Florence fennel is much harder to grow for me.

There are two types of fennel. One only grows fronds and is used as an herb. The one in the photo is Florence fennel, also called finocchio. The bulb has a slight licorice taste. I have also seen fennel bulbs in the grocery store labeled as anise.

Fruit or not you still know what they all are. Also I live in the UK and use Okra all the time in cooking. Use them like you would any vegetable I guess. A good thing to try is a nice Lebanese(?) dish called "Ladies Fingers".

Fruit and vegetable are not opposite categories. Whereas "fruit" is a botanical term, "vegetable" is a generic term referring to plant matter used as food, and what we call vegetables are basically defined by culinary use. Therefore, some fruits, like tomatoes, corn, and peppers, can correctly be referred to as vegetables as well.

Parsnip is the root of the parsley plant. It's mostly used in soups and stews for a richer parsley flavor.

Parsnips are a root vegetable related to parsley and carrots, but they are NOT roots of the parsley plant. In fact, the foliage of parsnips emits a white sap which is toxic to some people and can cause rashes just from touching it. I grow them in my garden, and my favorite way to use them is to dice them and roast them. They keep well in storage and taste sweeter after a frost. Parsley roots look similar but are not as sweet.

I would think that sweetcorn should have worked since it has the word corn in it. I think the website doesn't care what comes before or after the word, as long as the word appears in what you type somewhere.

It's also good tossed with coconut flour, drizzled with olive oil, and roasted in a single layer in the oven for 45 minutes, (turning occasionally) then salted. If you don't want it to ooze its slime while cooking, leave a small portion of stem on it and roast or boil whole. It's only when the seed cavity is cut into that it gets its characteristic sliminess. I also use the smallest leaves in late summer salads, and the dried seeds can be roasted and used as a coffee substitute. It keeps producing even during a drought and is a real workhorse in my summer garden that produces new pods every day or two. I freeze enough to keep us in okra all winter, and the dried pods are pretty in floral arrangements. Just wear gloves and long sleeves when harvesting or the tiny prickles will leave you itching.

True fact: in the rural Midwest, bell peppers, especially green ones, were called mangos. You'll still hear older folk use the term, even if they know what a mango (fruit) actually is.

Really?? That's so weird! Especially because mangoes are delicious, and bell peppers are, well, alright. Perhaps the similar(ish) shapes led to the colloquialism?

My grandmother always called them mango peppers and old cookbooks sometimes use the term when referring to bell peppers. Several online sources say they were called mangoes because the first mango fruits imported into the US arrived in pickled form, and soon any fruit or veggie which was pickled was called "mangoed", and bell peppers were popular fruits to pickle back then. I'm not sure I buy that explanation, but it's a possibility. But I have to wonder if that is true, then why don't we call cucumbers mangoes?

Why hamburger instead of burger? Why English muffin instead of muffin? Why Spanish peanuts? There's usually some connection to the country in either place of origin or cooking method. As far as what other kind of sprout? Bean sprouts and alfalfa sprouts to name two. If one referred to cabbage sprouts there would be a question as to whether it was a Brussels sprout or the sprouted seed of the cabbage plant.

Can you accept 'sweetcorn' for 'corn'? That's what we call it in England.
reply
delete
Sep 21, 2015
(71)
When I was young and people still ate field corn (in the roasting ear stage) as well as sweet corn, we made the distinction in the US, too. Nowadays field corn (dent or flint corn) isn't widely available for human consumption except as corn meal or hominy, so sweet corn in the marketplace has become known simply as "corn". (The sugar content has been bred to be so high in modern sweet corn that most people nowadays wouldn't like the old low-sugar field corn, anyway.)

I think that tomatoes should be removed from the list. Even though the Supreme Court filed it as a vegetable, botanically speaking, a fruit is any plant that contains the seed inside. Bell pepper, eggplant, tomato, pumpkin, cucumber, and corn all contains seeds inside, making these "vegetables" fruits.
