Re: What food item is in the field?

Sugar beets are actually quite good to eat, juic,y and well, as the name points out sweet, use them as you would any root vegetable, but get them from a farmer.

Re: What food item is in the field?

My kids went on a school excursion to learn about sugar beets and the production of sugar in Switzerland. They really enjoyed the experience...

In North America it is called CANOLA (which is a CDN variation on rapeseed). It stands for "Canada oil low acid".
I thought the Americans called it Canola because they can´t get the word "rape" over their lips.

Re: What food item is in the field?

Rapsöl (rapeseed oil) is becoming much more widely used - even TV chefs are promoting it.
Almost taking over from sunflower oil.
High in polyunsaturates and I'm sure I've heard it has anti-carcinogenic properties.

I've been using it for years.

There's some controversy over the etymology of the name, but it's certainly "manufactured".

"Canola" is the name used in Australia and New Zealand, too.

Tip: you're not supposed to take from the pile in the field

.
There is however nothing to stop you from picking up any that happen to roll off the trailer and land on the roadside as frequently happens around here. Nobody would expect you to trace the owner of these sugar beet.
