A picture, a lot of confusion: A user on Facebook posted a snapshot of a type of vegetable on Saturday and wrote: “Quiz question, what kind of vegetable is that?” A look at the comments column indicates a lot of smoking heads. Many different tips have been given with parsley root, sugar root, horseradish, salsify, ginger and oat root. Or is it something else? What do you think?
The author of the Facebook post gives a hint in the comments: “First it tastes sweet and then it’s hot.” Incidentally, the mystery has not yet been solved. But: If you compare the different answer options, then the sugar root looks the most similar to the picture on Facebook. This was also the most commonly suspected online. A user even writes: “It’s definitely a sugar root. I recently bought one at the market.” According to her, you can eat them without peeling them—raw or cooked.
