Vegetables that start with V

1. Vanilla

In the old days, vanilla was literally worth its weight in gold, and in Mexico, there was even a caste of vanilla thieves, and farmers marked each pod with a brand to identify it in case of theft. In ancient times, vanilla pods were used by Indians as money. The Totonac tribe, the first to come up with the cultivation of vanilla vines, captured by the Aztecs, paid tribute to them with vanilla pods.

Vanilla is used in confectionery production and in the preparation of sweet dishes. It is used to flavor chocolate, products containing cocoa, cookies, biscuits, creams, ice cream, etc.
