African Potato Mint
Also known as Kaffir Potato. This mint relative is grown for its potato-like tuber. These tubers can get very large, up to 4 lbs., are very high in protein, carbohydrate, iron and calcium. A so called “lost crop” of Africa that in fact is of immense value today! Thrives in hot and fairly dry conditions. Requires 6 months of warm to hot growing conditions to yield mature tubers.

Three OMRI #Organic plants will be available for drawing at tomorrow's event (will tag event when on computer). Original plant was from Timothy Noyes. Sharing the plant and will keep propagating it for EPP. Laura Halmuth this was the plant I brought for your SEWParty.

Abed’s Molokhiya Soup Recipe

Molokhiya is a fast growing annual in the hibiscus (Malvaceae) family.  It is closely related to the jute plant, which is used for making rope.  It originated in the marshes along the Nile River.  It is enjoyed wherever it is commonly grown, which includes parts of the Middle East and Asia.  It can be eaten raw or juiced, but is usually made into a thick soup.

Molokhiya leaves – roughly 3-4 cups, finely chopped
Olive oil (or butter) – 2 tbsp
Jalapeno – 1 tbsp finely chopped
Onions – 1 small onion – chopped finely

Beef – ground? 1 lb?
Ginger – small nub finely chopped
Garlic – 3 cloves finely chopped

Cooked Rice
Parsley – finely chopped for serving

Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a large pan.
Add the garlic, jalapeno, and onions and sauté till golden brown.
Add 2 cups water for every cup of finely chopped molokhiya
Bring to the boil then turn down to simmer.
Simmer for 45 mins – one hour.

Saute the beef and garlic with the remaining oil until browned nicely and cooked through.
Add it to the molokhiya soup, and simmer for a further 10-15 minutes.
Add salt to taste.

Serve over rice with parsley sprinkled on top
