Has anyone else grown Apios americana - the groundnut? I planted it 4 years ago and thought it had died during the winter. The bed it was in was covered for months last year, but this spring it emerged and dashed up the bean supports nearby. The flowers were very pretty and scented and today i have dug up a bucketful of tubers - some a good 3" long! They are ok tasting but are said to be good for thickening sauces/stews etc, does anyone know how to dry them/grind them etc. Any recipes?
