We usually don't give too much thought to where our foods come from. But sometimes somethings you learn can surprise you.
Tomatoes for a long of time were not a part of Italian cooking. But in a part of time the tomatoes where introduced to them by Europeans. Let us tell you that tomatoes are poisonous. This fruit is actually a part of a plant that contains the same poison as deadly nightshade known as glycoalkaloid. The potatoes are also in the same family as tomatoes. Let me be frank tomatoes and potatoes are not going to kill you. They are tasty and they are safe to eat.
