Written Acts of Kindness Award

Written Acts of Kindness Badge

Ek wil die toekenning maak aan twee wonderlike bloggers.

Eerste is die ou vrou met haar grys kamerjas

wat woon in die huis op die hoek.

Sy is besonders talentvol as dit by skryf kom.

Sy het onlangs die liefste kleinkind gekry.

Mia is ouma en oupa se oogappel.

Gaan ontmoet haar gerus in die huis op die hoek en

drink n koppie koffie.

Maori Potatoes

Since having an International student living with me I also get the opportunity to see, do and cook new things. I came across Maori Potatoes on Monday and decided to try it. I first had to look up what it was and how to cook it.

It really surprised me.

I forgot to take a photo before cooking it.

Here is the cooked end product.

Tastes very good!

It has a dark purple skin.

You may or may not peel it.

Boiled like potatoes.

It is a firm potato which can also be used to fry or bake.

Delicious!

History

Māori have grown taewa in New Zealand for over 200 years. Taewa are a tāonga, or treasure, and have significant cultural and historical value in New Zealand. Taewa originated in South America over 2,000 years ago and were first brought to New Zealand by European explorers in the late 18th century. Māori gave the traditional cultivars Māori names and have continued to grow them ever since.
