It's time to harvest the spaghetti crop

Spaghetti harvest

Recently, a member of a very erudite cooking bulletin board raised the  fact that it is now the spaghetti harvest season in Switzerland. The Swiss have, to a large extent,  convinced the rest of the world that spaghetti is made in Italy from a wheat dough, but true food cognescenti are aware that spaghetti is actually grown on trees. Like much in Switzerland, the process is secretive, but the intrepid British actually once caught the harvest on film, thereby proving its existence. Admittedly the quality of the video isn't great, but it still proves the point.

If you doubt any of this, we all know that the BBC never lies- so  check out this video on You Tube.

    I love this story & have used it many times in my career as a teacher librarian when teaching students to be very discerning when doing research. I get some every time who in all innocence ask, "Really??? I never knew that!" And these are high school students!
