Yammy clapshot

Okay, so here’s the thing, the other day I bought a BIG bag of what I thought was just sweet potato for £1 from a high street grocer and hidden in there in full sight were also yams.  I thought “Ooo yes please, Lovely jubbly” and did a spiced version of Clapshot (which is a traditional orcadian dish) using NO potatoes, only carrot, sweet potato, those yams and once drained seasoned with vegetable stock cube, a teaspoon of powdered coriander and a blob of Flora marg.  So of course my silly little attempt at portion control ended and the “I’ve stopped eating second helpings” went straight out of the ruddy window!  Could you hear my “Drat, Double Drat and Triple Drat!” but wait, isn’t that the words Minetter Batters of the NFU will be saying a lot of now, as we all laugh like Mutley!?  Thankfully, she did animals a big favour the other day and take a look at why.  Oh and FYI the NFU only represent less than 10% of British Farmers (using Wikipedia headcount 476,000 and the NFU’s own headcount 50,000).  Anyways, I love that the man in the advert supports his daughter, as I also “don’t want to eat animals”.  I also don’t want to waste away for that matter and as yammy clapshot is veg, veg and more veg, of course I had thirds! and some!!  Let me at it I thought and rightly so for veg is health and I say give it a go, try some wholesome, low-fat, vitamin full, healthy, yammy clapshot!

One thought on “Yammy clapshot

  1. I would have mistaken those as Sweet potatoes. Yams, or rather the ones that I sometimes buy a generally massive and woody looking.
