What Is the Queen Excited About?

“We are not informed whether the queen [Elizabeth of England] made use of it herself, but it is certain she gave great countenance to it as a vegetable of singular strength and power, which might therefore prove of benefit to mankind and advantage to the nation.”

Any idea what this newly discovered “vegetable” of such great value was?

About amspencer1984

I am a Christian who desires to serve in God's kingdom in the best way possible. I have served as a foreign missionary in southern Mexico. I have worked as a youth minister at my local church of Grace Baptist in Dickson, TN. I have also recently begun to write books with a desire to help others grow in life. I hope that they are helpful and effective in doing that. I have been married to Alicia Spencer since 2003. We have six children and give thanks to God for all of them.
