I am ignorant about many types of food.
I love food, but don’t usually think too deeply about how it is grown.
In the last few years I have discovered:
– pineapples don’t grow on trees.
– bananas hang on trees the opposite way I thought they did.
– coconuts don’t start out small, brown, and hairy like the ones in the supermarket.
– people do eat chestnuts, just not the kind that grew around my hometown.
(I always wondered why people were roasting chestnuts on an open fire in that Christmas song)
I still haven’t figured out peanuts yet: please don’t tell me, I want it to be a surprise.
note: road apples, prairie oysters, and cow pies do not grow on trees or in the ground. I think one of them is inedible, but I could be wrong.
double note: My in-depth knowledge of how rice is grown hopefully makes up for these other deficiencies.
