Kitchen Mystery Resolved

I was working on the recipe and a next post but don't  feel that it's coming out the way I want. So, I decided to leave it until I am able to comprehend better all things around me. Today was the D-Day, the dentist day, and I had my wisdom tooth removed. My left brain hemisphere, along with face, mouth, etc., is numb and malfunctions.


However, I didn't want to leave my blog abandoned for today. I have a few pictures to share.
First, is an answer to the buzzing question "What happened to that knife?" from the Kitchen Mystery post. 


My favorite knife met a jar of Lingonberrie preserve, and couldn't handle it. 

***
Second picture is another  teasing question: 
Part of which common vegetable is this? 


Dill and ...




Let me give you a hint: often times this part is ignored and discarded.


So, what vegetable is it?




Until next time,
Cowboy Country Vegetarian

  2. I was thinking potato, too, but it's not commonly discarded. Can't wait to hear the answer. Hope your mouth feels better soon~

    1. Balvinder, no, I wouldn't dear to do it to my favorite knife. It was someone else. :) Thank you for your kind words, Balvinder.

  5. It looks like (a lot of) cauliflower stalks but I don't think they're that thin. Some sort of root vegetable...^^; Most people will tell you that I'm not the greatest guess with this sort of stuff. Have a great day, Marina!

  6. As a veggie, I am so pleased to have discovered your blog.
    I've never had lingonberries so I will have to look out for them.
    The vegetable, mmm I can't quite guess. I would have said cauliflower, but these look too neat. Sticking with cauliflowert for now.

  7. Hmm, there's been a lot of cauliflower guesses but I think I'll go for something different. I'm thinking the root of something - celery root, or parsley root perhaps.

    1. Thank you, Liz. Is parsley root discarded?! For us parsley root is such a delicacy, that is hard to come by this days.

  8. I hope you're feeling better now. I'm SO sorry about your knife...UGH! They are expensive to replace! As for the veggie - I'm going with celery root....

    1. That knife wasn't expensive but it was super comfortable. I already tried several knives, nothing so far works for me even close to that knife. Oh, well... Maybe it's time to go for one of those a bit more expensive Shun knives (knife that was broken I bought for $6 at TJ Max some years ago).

  9. I told you it was a jar! It looks like a starchy vegetable but I have no idea what it could be :(

    1. Good guess, Ruth. However, when I posted that picture, I didn't know what was it. It took me a long talk with ... well, who did it, promising no retaliation, etc., until I was told what really happened to it...:) In the end, it's just a knife!

    2. Aww, I'm sure the lesson was learned and it's great no grounding was required :-)

  10. Oh, sad knife situation :) Parsnip or jicama? But the discarded part throws me off. Now I am curious!

    So nice stopping by to visit with you!

    Kindly, Lorraine
