Sweet Potatoes (Ipomoea batatas) is a dicotyledonous plant that belongs to the morning glory family Convolvulaceae. Its large, starchy, sweet-tasting, tuberous roots are a root vegetable. In some parts of the English-speaking world, sweet potatoes are locally known by other imagesnames such as kumara, but people usually confused it with yam due to their similar appearances. The young leaves and shoots are sometimes eaten as greens. The sweet potato is only distantly related to the potato (Solanum tuberosum) and does not belong to the nightshade family Solanaceae, but both families belong to the same taxonomic order, the Solanales.

The plant is a herbaceous perennial vine, bearing alternate heart-shaped or palmately lobed leaves and medium-sized sympetalous flowers. The edible tuberous root is long and tapered, with a smooth skin whose color ranges between yellow, orange, red, brown, purple, and beige. Its flesh ranges from beige through white, red, pink, violet, yellow, orange, and purple. Sweet potato cultivars with white or pale yellow flesh are less sweet and moist than those with red, pink or orange flesh.

Ipomoea batatas is native to the tropical regions in the Americas. Of the approximately 50 genera and more than 1,000 species of Convolvulaceae, I. batatas is the only crop plant of major importance—some others are used locally (e.g. I. aquatica “kangkong”), but many are poisonous. The genus Ipomoea that contains the sweet potato also includes several garden flowers called morning glories, though that term is not usually extended to Ipomoea batatas. Some cultivars of Ipomoea batatas are grown as ornamental plants under the name tuberous morning glory, used in a horticultural context.

Herbal Patches / Urtelapper

A herbal recipe from “Varme Småretter” (Hot Snacks)
published by Gyldendal in 1991

urtelapper_post

Why not combine your Sunday trips in the spring with providing a little food? Edible crops are growing almost everywhere, but do not pick plants too close to roads with heavy trafic.

It is the first faint sprouts and leaves that are best. Later in the spring and summer, they taste too strongly to be used for food. A mixture of fresh herbs such as basil, parsley, chives, and more can also be used in the patches.

I know I’ve posted about fish patties earlier, but fish patties are staple food in Norway. Any decent grocer will have at least 6 or 8 different types in stock. Almost any type of fish can be used, my mother made great patties from pike and perch I used to catch in my youth.

There are a multitude of recipes for fish patties around the country so I’ll be sure to post more recipes in the future – Ted
