Foreign Muck

On my wander today I stop at a wayside stall and buy a bag of tarot from a grinning old lady who must be at least a centenarian. Tarot is my favorite vegetable.

It appears to grown in swampy fields where Egrets live.

I had never come across this vegetable before Okinawa. Also I have never bought it er raw. It seems always to be sold already boiled.

Tonight's feast - Pork, tarot,lotus root, mushrooms. There is also Hokkaido smoked Salmon as a starter.

I marinate everything in soya sauce, brown sugar and water and then cook it.

Then I eat it.

    Tasty looking meal. Often gaze on the taro roots in my local Chinese and Indian grocers – must get round to trying it myself. Apparently the Romans were fond of it as a side dish to the fattened dormice in honey.
