While my potato harvest has been extremely good, we are getting a little sick of potatoes here at The New Castle of Corke. I have been seriously running out of things to do with potatoes! I’ve made nikujaga, mashed potatoes, irish stew and have even fried the darn things in my airfryer!
Yesterday, I dug up the biggest potato I had ever seen in my life and realised that I had gotten to the end of my potato threshold. Neither the Boobook nor I felt like eating potatoes anymore.
Thankfully, my friend, Mrs Peacock, was visiting family in Newcastle and she had had far too much citrus. So, we did the only thing that made sense:
We traded produce.
I have now participated in the barter economy! Check me out being all productive and stuff!
Now all I gotta do is figure out what to do with all this fruit…
With little success, unfortunately. Some potatoes were not made to fry. They disintegrated instead.
