Earthnut Pea


The Earth Nut pea is a small climbing perennial, Native to Europe and Asia. It is a week climber, so it will need a little help.

What you want is the root. It is edible raw and cooked.

Earthnut pea takes a short time to cook, and is only added towards the end of the preparation time – this is because it cooks rapidly and adding it late enables it to keep most of its nutritious elements. Often combined with chopped and minced veggies, to make a wonderful soup.

This is something that you will need to take to your local greenhouse about.

ya I know, but I didn't want to do the obvious E just yet.

okay, you say it is a perennial, but not if you eat the root. is any of the rest of the plant edible?

Merry said...

Wow! I can't believe it took me half an hour to catch up!

I also forgot that you're an hour ahead of me this time of year!

How'm I supposed to go get a new camera cable when you're so interesting? I know I'll miss at least three posts - four if I stop to get honey and broccoli on the way home!?

Mark, nothing else on the plant is edible, perennial is what I was informed.

Merry, HURRY GO GO GO!

Mark, sorry. I guess I am being a little slow. You are right, it will not come back if you eat the root. People do use it as decoritive. If you don't eat it, it will come back.
