    QUOTES:
    “Apples: There are some 55 different species of apple trees, yet all 7,500 types of modern culinary apple come from a single genus (Malus Pumila) of wild apple, that spread from Kazakhstan over the last 6,000 years. Granny Smith, Fuji, Bramley, Coxes, Pink lady, Red Delicious and many more.”
    "One of America’s biggest folk heroes, Johnny Appleseed, took it as his life’s mission to create new orchards across America. Unlike apple trees in the past, which were mainly grown from grafts taken from other trees that came from Europe, Johnny Appleseed, only planted new trees from seeds - as nature intended.Apples have a unique DNA, more complicated than Human DNA. Unlike taking grafts from existing trees which clone the tree, the seeds can actually create genetically different trees compared to the parent tree. And seed planting led to increased bio-diversity and new American apple varieties.”

Great intro to history and food when traveling!

I have learned so much about the history of foods I love, but my favorite part is learning about new foods I can try while traveling.

Irritating and shallow

Had great hopes for this, but it’s just an irritating couple reading from Google with no new information or angle, whilst giggling insanely at their crass attempts to mispronounce foreign words.
