Stilly River Sage BS: Tripe - The foodstuff (77* d) RE: BS: Tripe - The foodstuff 23 Jan 21


I bake sweet potato until it is caramelized and oozing into the baking sheet, and I try to get the very large ones. Then I can slice off an inch-thick round and heat it in the microwave to go with meals. It grows here very well so some years I end up with many pounds of them (I grow the "Beauregard" variety) to eat and give away.

A North American delicacy that I also get in the garden is corn smut (called "huitlacoche" in Mexico). It's a fungal growth on the maize that goes to waste in my yard but I have many Mexican neighbors and I should advertise when I have it so it gets used. And another yard foodstuff, for years I had a large prickly pear in the yard that people would sometimes ask if they could have a few pads. I eat nopalito cut up and stir fried (I buy it cut up at a local Hispanic grocery store). I was never sure how to handle the ones that grew in my yard.
