ENJOY THESE GREAT FOOD FACTS.

* Peanuts are salted in the shell by boiling them in a heavily salted solution, then allowing them to dry.

* The table fork was introduced into England in 1601.  Until then, people would eat with their knives, spoons or fingers.  When Queen Elizabeth first used a fork, the clergy went ballistic.  They felt it was an insult to God not to touch meat with one’s fingers.

* Pineapples are classified as berries!

* Cabbage is 91% water.

* There is no alcohol left in food that’s cooked with wine.  The alcohol evaporates at 172 degrees Fahrenheit.
