Trees Discovered In Sicily That Actually Grow Spaghetti

2

Spaghetti has to be one of the world's best traveled foods. Even people who have never visited Italy are aware of what spaghetti is!

However, over the recent years, pasta of all forms have been getting a bit of a bad press, what with the low-carb brigade denouncing it (along with bread and potatoes) as the ultimate evil for our waist lines.

This has led to the spiralizing craze.

For those who have been living on the Moon for the past few years, spiralizing is the practice of creating thin spaghetti-like strips from vegetables, and using this in place of traditional, carb-heavy spaghetti.

But now, get ready for the next food craze...........

Trees that grow spaghetti!

Deep in the heart of Sicily (where it is rumored that the first spaghetti was made by Arab immigrants) a local farmer has discovered a 'lost' species of tree that grows long noodles.

Through an interpreter, he said, “I cut some off and tried to cook them by boiling in water. They taste very similar to zucchini noodles, and taste fantastic with some homemade tomato sauce and Parmesan!”

It seems this species of vegetable was abundant in Sicily many centuries ago, but was then lost due to environmental changes.

Over the last few years, however, changes in the seasons have been reported in many countries, and Sicily is one of them.

Perhaps for this reason, Sicily is now seeing a rebirth of these trees which were thought to be extinct.

American food companies have already swooped in to help get this remarkable, low-carb spaghetti onto US plates as soon as possible.

And we understand why!

If you've ever tried to spiralize zucchini, carrots, beets, or squash, you'll know that, even with the best spiralizing gadgets out there, it's a real chore.

But that's not all. This miracle fruit (yes, it's technically a fruit) also has the ability to create 'negative calories'.

In other words, your body will actually use up more calories to digest this fruit then it will gain from it. Which means you can actually eat yourself slim!

As you can expect, American food companies are clamoring over themselves to woo this traditional Sicilian farmer, as they know that 'ready-made' vegetable spaghetti is likely to catch on, especially when no spiralizing is needed!

Here at Chef Remi, we're advocates of eating real foods, cooking home cooked meals, and avoiding processed rubbish.

So we're also very excited at this food news, and we can't wait to try out some recipes with this remarkable ingredient.

Trust us, as soon as we've done some experimenting, we'll be telling you all about it!

You'll be able to enjoy spaghetti bologna, spaghetti with meatballs, in fact, any spaghetti dish you want, without loading up on carbs, without spending time peeling and spiralizing vegetables, and also lose weight!

We can't wait to see spaghetti trees planted everywhere!

I went to Sicily last year and got to know the news of this kind of trees. Yes they really exists. Its really surprising to know that such trees really exists. The post is very well written.

Preparing these “tree noodles” for eating definitely seems a lot easier than peeling and spiralizing vegetables! I would think the noodles to be a very interesting new source of fiber, as well. I want one in my back yard, although, I wonder if these spaghetti trees would even grow in places other than Italy.

Nicky said: Awesome Cheese Grater

I am in love with this cheese grater, it works wonderfully grating blocks of cheese and I love how it sits right on top of the container so it shreds right into the plasticware. Also it comes with a lid container so you can easily store any unused cheese. I will shred extra cheese and leave it in my fridge, knowing i will use it in the next few days. I definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a cheese grater

I got these at a discounted rate back in May 2017 as my previous ones the handles broke off, the info that came with this set said the items could withstand heat as i usually leave mine on top of the stove on a spoon rest.. Never seen either one melt, they have withstood being dropped and washed many times over and neither one has peeled or cracked.. I definitely made a good purchase and love my Chef Remi spatula's ..

Debbie said: Amazing hard wearing utensil

Brilliant piece of kit for anyone who loves to grill, this is a heavy hard wearing grill cleaner that can stand up to the messiest of grill. We've not only used it for cleaning the grill on the BBQ but also on the oven shelves as the huge head space makes t so easy to get into all the hard to clean places. Would highly recommend.

Paula Pyzia said: Meat thermometer

i got this product at a discounted rate some time ago as i was fed up in trying to figure out how cooked a turkey or chicken was after it being in the oven for the required amount of time.. so i got this meat thermometer basically for my poultry cooking.. definitely worked out great.. and its easy to wash. the batteries still work from the day i got it.. havent had any issues with it at all

Christina Chaney said: No More Guessing

Before purchasing this thermometer, I had to guess if a cut of meat was safely cooked- usually by cutting into the middle and deciding by how it looked if it was done. No more! This thermometer takes the guess work out of it, is easy to use and easy to read!
