What am I???


I know I'm being something of a copycat, as several of my favourite bloggers have been holding little competitions - but I couldn't resist :o)
All you have to do is tell me what you think the object in the photo is and I'll put all the right answers in a hat... You can have as many guesses as you like, and I'll send the winner a wee something...
And to make it as auspicious as possible - I'll draw the names on the Ides of March (the 15th)...

FUN FUN FUN! A guessing game!

Is it a cookie, cracker or middle of a flower? Hmm...I'll keep thinking and if I come up with anything else I will write again. I think it's something laying on fabric.

Great questions, Angela! Answers below...





{I taste best cooked, though I smell lovely and sweet when sliced. In the pic I'm lying on the chopping board having been peeled and sliced... Like Marmite, you'll love me or hate me...}

rutabega? rutabaga. hmmmm cannot spell this word phonetically. Not even sure I spelled phonetically correctly, although correctly looks right. hmmmm turnip? There. Turnip is easier to spell. I'll go with turnip.

Water chestnut?

Is it available in UK?

 
At 5:38 pm , Blogger Angela said...

I would say a part of an apple but that's a fruit. Umm........Shucks! A waterchestnut seems good but that might be to big to be one. Don't know...

 
At 6:10 pm , Blogger Anna said...

Ooooh! More great answers...
To answer Mrs Nesbitt, Yes, I'm a very traditional English vegetable... I realize now I may be so English, our American friends may not even know what I am.... ummmm!
Keep on guessing....

LOL I think Mrs. Nesbitt believes it to be a parsnip, just in case you couldn't tell from her comments.

 
At 11:36 pm , Blogger Helen Suzanne said...

lol, know i'm too late but it's a parsnip slice after you've chopped the sides down on a red plastic covering. (nice to find your blog btw)

 
At 8:25 am , Blogger Mahala said...

I agree. It's a parsnip...and a pretty one at that.

 
At 10:10 pm , Blogger Alma Stoller said...

Wow! from a far it looks like a button....but a closer look reveals little watery spots....so I think it is some kind of fruit.

Parsnip!

 
At 3:52 am , Blogger LisaOceandreamer said...

Ok, I am going to go way out to left field.....is it a used coffee filter?
I am completely stumped otherwise! But I'll keep staring at it!

Hello Claire!
Is it a Jerusalem artichoke? I've never seen one but have heard a description and was told it is a very English veggie...

Hugs,
Wendy

Sweet pepper or some sort of pepper anna

 
At 7:08 pm , Blogger JoyceAnn said...

Trying Again !

Parsnip
Turnip

 
At 8:08 pm , Blogger zorana said...

Kohlrabi!!!
Maybe not... but I'll go with that.

 
At 10:19 pm , Blogger LisaOceandreamer said...

ok, if I would just pay more attention to the other comments...so it's a traditional English vegetable. my first guess was being silly.
So of course the first thing I think is parsnip....but then I don't know what is traditional. I'm SO confused. lol!
this time I will say sugar beet and then after that I will say leek.
This is making me a mad woman.LOL!

Well, after reading everyone's post of a Parsnip....I know that is what I should say it is but because it is I and I am obstinate, I won't. To me it looks like the top view of a cut, peeled Kohlrabi which I absolutely love but have never actually LOOKED at it!

 
At 7:25 pm , Blogger ikkinlala said...

I, too, think it's a slice of parsnip.

 
At 10:42 pm , Blogger altermyworld said...

Lobok-Daikon-chinese radish???
Ang

 
At 10:39 am , Blogger Francesca said...

That would be a parsnip! Mmmmm, yum :)

 
At 3:50 pm , Blogger Lisa said...

I am going to go out on a limb here and say..parsnip!

You know...Mrs. Nesbitt has said it so often, it no longer looks like a word. hehe

I had my first lychee(sp) recently, but that's not typically English is it? It looked white and soft like that anyway. Whatever it is I love the markings in the centre.
BTW, I love your alter ego.

Since it's nearly spring, I'm going to guess it's a kite. I saw Mary Poppins, I know the Brits like to fly kites!

 
At 12:58 am , Blogger plongstocking said...

Parsnips have a plastic covering? I've never cooked a parsnip - or bought one for that matter. Guess I've never tasted one either now that I think about it. But I'm sure it's a parsnip. That's my second guess, yep, a parsnip.

 
At 1:25 pm , Blogger Anna Nowicki said...

Turnip or raddish or how about cauliflower stalk?? This is truly annoying!!

 
At 2:16 pm , Blogger Matroskin said...

Horse radish?

 
At 8:31 pm , Blogger Anna said...

Some of my lovely Glitter Sisters over on Violette's messageboard have had problems posting here - sometime Blogger can be a right p**"^%!!
So I'm adding their suggestions... Flassie's had a string of ideas: kohlrabi, turnip, parsnip, taro corms, yucca, white radish, swede, dandelion and burdock!
Liz in the land of Oz keeps staring at it and can only see a car airbag...
And dear EverythingAltered wonders of it's some sort of birth control...
Well, only a couple more days to go and ALL will be revealed :o)
Keep Guessing!!!!!!!!!!!
