ot potatoes

Started by John Larkin October 4, 2022
We were prowling the local farmers' market and came across some
remarkably ugly potatoes, so we bought some and mashed them. They are
wonderful, sweet but not as candy sweet as some Yukon Golds and with a
more substantial flavor.

Huckleberry Gold.

We also scored some Aztec Cave beans, of urban legend. But mighty
good.

There were all sorts of asian veggies that looked dangerous too.

The fried dumplings are Nepalese MoMo's. The guys in truck thought it
was hilarious to yell "MoMos for Mo."

I usually buy deepfreeze potato chips, no idea what sort of potatoes those are made from. Then pizza, tofu, spaghetti, brown rice, mushrooms, yogurt, lots of olive oil, kiwies, bananas, cookies, butter, orange juice, apple juice, apples, grapes, apricots, apple pie, sometimes some nuts, sometimes some chocolate, All from the local supermarket apart from the grapes Bananas to get my radiation dose training DNA repair for the WW3 nuking. And water of course,

Yuk! I do not like my potatoes sweet! If I want a sweet potato, I buy sweet potatoes amd cook those. There are some really nice "waxy" salad-type potatoes with a very good flavour. This one is a very old variety and is particularly good, but has the unfortunate name of "Ratte"! <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ratte_potato> -- Jeff
