Jimmy Doherty, Kate Quilton and Matt Tebbutt uncover more unusual, intriguing and surprising secrets behind the food we eat. Jimmy's off to Israel on the trail of an elusive fruit: the fresh date. If raisins are dried grapes and prunes are dried plums, then what exactly are dates? Jimmy's search for the answer takes him to a vast water purification plant, where they harness the raw sewage of Tel Aviv to turn barren desert into fertile farmland. Kate heads to Belfast to meet a sausage maker whose sales suffered in the wake of the recent World Health Organisation report linking processed meat to cancer. But can a fresh British banger really be as bad for you as a frankfurter? And what is processed meat anyway? To find out, Kate enlists Matt's help to create the most processed sausage possible. How will Britain's foremost expert on processed meat react to Kate's Frankensausage?
