5/18/2003: Rapeseed art



it's a giant place setting with a giant bottle of rapeseed oil, all to celebrate the rapeseed festival in Adlersburg, Germany. The umbrella is actually a person walking through it all, to give you a concept of scale...

Isn't rapeseed the same as canola?

     I think whoever came up with this had just gotten back from a little "visit" to Amsterdam...

I'm from Germany, so I know a lot about this. The rapeseed comes from the rape fruit, a bright, cheerful little thing that that is surprisingly sour.
Rape juice is delicious.

Yep - same stuff - canola was the marketing name made up when someone realized that selling a product with the word rape in it was "non PC"

now THAT taken out of context could look bad...

The whole name always put me off....seeds of rape...sounds like a second rate anti-porn rant or something.

Canola is a genetic variation of rapeseed developed by Canadian plant breeders specifically for its nutritional qualities, particularly its low level of saturated fat.



tokenidiot  Monday May 19 02:10 PM

I am totally full of shit.



Undertoad  Monday May 19 03:01 PM

Admitting it is the important first step.



warch  Monday May 19 03:05 PM

Isnt this Lorenzo's Oil?



Griff  Monday May 19 03:33 PM

I don't know about that but there was a lot of apparently unfounded paranoia about canola/rapeseed oil on an organics list serve I used to subscribe to. They thought the stuff was totally toxic.



xoxoxoBruce  Monday May 19 04:23 PM

I wonder if Rape seeds would grow the grapes of wrath.



OnyxCougar  Monday May 19 04:45 PM

**sigh**



Bitmap  Sunday May 25 04:28 PM
