      Noticed in the E.U. regulations a 'Topinambur' (German, in French it
      is 'topinambour') which is defined as 'a spirit drink produced solely
      by the fermentation of Jerusalem artichoke tubers (Helianthus
      tuberosus L.) with a minimum alcoholic strength by volume of 38%.'
      Helianthus tuberosus does not come from Palestine, it is actually a
      native of North America and the 'Jerusalem' part is a corruption
      of 'girasol' - Italian for sunflower to which the plant belongs.
      I am surprised that in its native land no spirit drink is made from
      it.
