Cary Caterers

Strawberries and Raspberries Really Aren’t Berries

This one blows my mind, but it’s true. Strawberries and raspberries are not botanically berries. These fruits come from a single flower with at least two ovaries. This makes them aggregate fruits. Other berries are simple fruits that come from one flower with only one ovary. Get this, bananas, tomatoes, and kiwis are berries.

Brown Sugar Is White Sugar

Yep, brown sugar is just regular refined white sugar with molasses added back in.

Caesar Salad Was Invented in Mexico

According to the legend, Italian-American restaurateur Caesar Cardini invented the salad in 1924 in Tijuana, Mexico. Even though Cardini lived in San Diego at the time, he operated a restaurant in Tijuana to avoid the restrictions of prohibition that was happening in the US.

German Chocolate Cake Is Not from Germany

American baker Samuel German developed a dark baking chocolate for the Baker’s Chocolate Company in 1852. The brand name, Baker’s German’s Sweet Chocolate, was named in honor of him. On June 3, 1957, a recipe for “German’s Chocolate Cake” appeared as the “Recipe of the Day” in The Dallas Morning News created by Mrs. George Clay, a homemaker from Dallas, Texas.

Pineapples Do Not Ripen After Picking

After a pineapple has been picked it will not ripen any further. That means leaving it out on the counter for a few days will not make it taste any sweeter.
