Britain exports 15,000 tons of waffles a year

anntn6b(z6b TN)April 27, 2008

This global market of foods is almost incomprehensible.

I doubt that all the goods are inspected. Or even looked at in their natural (or unnatural) growing conditions.

And plant diseases abroad aren't going to stay abroad. Not just within Rosaceae.

Here is a link that might be useful: Cod goes to China, then back to Norway

Hi Ann.........good to see you.

Speaking of waffles, did you see the waffle supposedly eaten by Obama on Ebay? Bidding up to 10,000. I don't think it was serious bidding though. :)

Kind of scary isn't it ???

It seems like every day there is a new warning about something--

Almost afraid to eat anything.

thanks for the info.

Sandi (and Florence)
Hope you enjoyed the read and good to see you.
The cod just makes no sense at all. Surely there are some fishmongers left in Norway. I taught a short course in Trondheim and one night cooked a meal "American" style to say thanks for all the students taking me out the rest of the time. The fish market there was fantastic with great fish and mongers who could understand what I wanted as I sketched how many people it was to feed and how I wanted to cook it.
Waffles should be made at home and eaten immediately with lots of butter and home made jams.
And repented later.
