The Best Exotic Marigold Trivia, April 30, 2012

Marigolds were used in cooking during the Middle Ages and remain in use today. What expensive spice did they frequently replace in recipes in medieval Europe?

Congratulations to Thomas Heebøll-Holm who is this week's trivia winner. Pier Gerlofs Donia rebelled against the Duke of Saxony, the Burgundians, and the Hapsburgs after his village was attacked by the Black Band in 1515. (An honorable mention goes to Katie Robison, who also wrote in with the correct answer.)

Please send trivia responses by email to cmedst@umn.edu with Trivia in the subject line. Trivia winners can arrange to pick up a CMS mug or stationery set by sending us an email or visiting our office in 1030 Heller Hall. Also feel free to send ideas for future trivia questions.
