American Groundnut – Laurent Berrurier

$229 by kg (min 500g)

Apios americana, sometimes called the potato bean, hopniss, Indian potato, hodoimo, America-hodoimo, cinnamon vine, American groundnut, or groundnut (but not to be confused with other plants sometimes known by the name groundnut) is a perennial vine that bears edible beans and large edible tubers. American Groundnut is a good-looking native vine that produces fragrant flowers and edible tubers. Native throughout the eastern states, it was an important food resource for Native Americans and early colonists, and the high-protein tubers may be boiled, roasted or sautéed in many ways (they are not recommended raw). How to eat them? Look first to the Indians. Virtually every native group living where hopniss lives used the plant in some way, shape or form. The Cherokee liked the beans. The Menominee cooked the tubers with maple syrup. The Dakota used them like potatoes.

Some sources say to peel the tubers, but this is only necessary with really big, old tubers — you can eat those skins, too, but they’ll make you farty.
