Gosh Magee when I saw the title I thought you were cracking it about something and you had me worried. HAHAHA. Damn nice shot, Clear and crisp. Just keep em in a dark place. Wayne
I was Wayne! That thing is as long as my arm, and now I don’t know if I should eat it, or water it! lolol!
beautiful and poisonous….solanine if it’s a potato.Take the irony!!
Oh!!! Thank you dearest Annamaria! It’s a Sweet Potato.I just googled ‘Solanine’, and found this!
Are sweet potatoes with green sprouts still safe to eat?Sweet potatoes are botanically unrelated to the common potato. Potatoes are part of the nightshade family while Sweet Potatoes are cousins of the morning-glory. They do not produce the toxic solanine. Nevertheless, it is recommended to store them in a cool and dry place for up to one month, or use within one week if stored at room temperature. If refrigerated, their natural sugar will turn to starch and ruin the flavour. The common potato is a member of the nightshade family (Solanaceae) and should always be stored in a dark cool place, and kept away from light. Potatoes may turn green when exposed to light. To be safe, any green part on the potato, including any growths, should be cut away before using. Do not eat green potatoes, or the leaves, or stems. They contain solanine, a toxic alkaloidal glycoside. Besides, solanine is not destroyed when green potatoes are cooked.
Grazie Annamaria! xx
Awesome Magee!did the same shot last year but not as nice background! Love it!!
Thank you Edyta! It’s sitting in my fruit bowl, so I just propped a cushion up behine it! lolol!
Now aint that something!!!!!! You could have lied and called it a rare and hard to grow exotic cultivar or something of that nature Magee! But noooo, it’s just one of them there humble vegie thingies, hah!! All jokes aside my friend, this really is fabulous ……. I love the colours and the lighting here, is there no end to your talent??? ….. so nicely captured!!! ;)))
Yeah!! It’s something alright John! About $6.00 woth down the blinky drain! I live on the things. They are one of my staples. I’m a big on my fresh vegies. Never touch white potato, but these things are just so good for you, AND I just love them steamed. Now I’m sure if I googled their origin, I could come up with something exotic, but I don’t have time. I have to go shopping for a replacement, before the green grocer closes! lolol!
