"Nyimo is sort of like groundnut. It is almost perfectly spherical. Sometimes two or three of them join together in a very nice way. It lives underground and is very easy to grow.
You can cook a whole bunch in a big pot. Then take out the inside, white part and eat it. It has the kind of taste from home, a comfort food. You’d eat a lot of those and be farting all night. It makes story time by the fire more fun and interesting."
