Sunday 1st July 2007Horopito Lamb Chops with Tutaekuri Wedges and Yams
Horopito (Pseudowintera Colorata) is native NZ Bush Pepper, and my chosen "Wild Weed", even though it did come conveniently packaged from Kinaki, Wild Herbs. Horopito makes a "peppy" (hehe, do you like that?!) addition to marinades, spice rubs and sauces for meats, fish or vegetables. It is also traditionally used as an internal or external tonic, as it has anti-oxidant properties.
Tutaekuri, or Maori Potatoes are pretty WILD too! They are exceptionally floury potatoes and dark purple in colour, however more wildly "Tutaekuri" apparently translated to English (citation needed!) means dog poo! Now you would have to be rather fearless and WILD to eat dog poo, wouldn't you agree?
Yams, New Zealand Yams (better known as Oca in most parts of the world) as anyone who has grown them will know, are notoriously weedy! Basically once planted you'll have them in that part of the garden forever, only the smallest teeny part of the tuber left behind will continue to multiply and regenerate, year after year, after year!
So without further ado, here is my contribution to WILDFOOD #2 Wild Weeds!
For more on WILDFOOD stay tuned for the WILD WEEDS roundup to be posted in the next few days and see what wonderful WILD and WEEDY delicious fun some my friends have been up to!
