Ejiao is made from soaking and stewing the skin of donkeys. It has been prized in Chinese cuisine and traditional medicine.

13. Which pie made with citrus custard in a Graham cracker crust topped with baked meringue or whipped cream is the state pie of Florida?

From Quiz FunTrivia Hobbies Mix: Vol 6

Answer: key lime pie

Key limes differ from the Persian limes common in most grocer's cases in that they are smaller, tarter and more yellow than green. Key limes (Citrus aurantifolia 'Swingle') grow in the Florida Keys but most of the juice used in the US comes from Central and South America. Key lime pie was adopted by the Florida State Legislature as the state pie in 2006. The pie was likely invented in about 1930 to mimic a Borden recipe for lemon cream pie. No recipe earlier than 1931 is known.

Question by player FatherSteve

14. What flavouring gives Italian delights such as Amaretto liqueur and amaretti cookies their distinctive taste and smell?

From Quiz FunTrivia Hobbies Mix: Vol 5

Answer: almond

Amaretto means "a little bitter", referring to the bitter almonds used in its making. The dark-coloured, sweet liqueur, which can be drunk on its own or used in cocktails or desserts, originated in the town of Saronno (Lombardy), probably in the 15th century. Some commercial brands, however, use apricot kernel oil rather than bitter almonds as a flavouring, making the liqueur safe to drink for those who are allergic to nuts. Amaretti cookies, also from Saronno, are dry, crumbly macaroons made with sugar, egg whites, almonds and apricot kernels.

19. Pusdoc can often be found up at the crack of dawn, peering through binoculars at migrating flocks. In the US she is called a birder, but what term might be applied to a similar hobbyist in the UK?

From Quiz There's no 'I' in Team

Answer: Twitcher

Twitcher especially refers to the more competitive type of birder who races off to see rare birds to add to their list. Many birders "pish" making a noise to entice birds from the brush, but the term "pisher" is unrelated, referring to an insignificant person - which you might argue applies to birders, but be nice. Aviarists keep birds captive, and kveller is a Yiddish term for a person gushing with pride. A twitcher who locates a rarity might kvell on occasion! This question was tweeted by team member pusdoc.

From Quiz Odd Hobbies to Pass The Time

Answer: Ten Dollars

Reed Sandridge started giving money away on the third anniversary of his mother's death. He says she was a kind and compassionate woman who once gave him the advice, "when you're going through tough times, that's when you most need to give back." He had recently lost his job and remembered his mom's wise words of wisdom and so he started on his journey of "giving back". He gives ten dollars away every single day to a complete stranger. He started a blog about the people he has met while practicing his hobby. His hope is that sharing those stories with the world with help spread the "idea" and inspire others into spreading the kindness around, serving two purposes at the same time. One, by helping people and two, using the acts of goodwill as a way to pay respect to his mother's memory.
