Autumn on the Ridge

Autumn on the Ridge

By Carrie Jacobson
Peter came home the other day laughing. He’d gone to the vegetable stand down the road and bought tomatoes and something else, some kind of sweet potato that he’d never seen before.
He asked the person selling the veggies what it was, and she said, “Hnnggh!”
“What is it?” Peter said. “Pardon?”
“Hnngghh!” she said.
And my dear husband, who pretty clearly was never going to understand what that woman was saying, just gave up and bought the hnngghh. He bought two of them, actually, brought them home and cooked them, and they were delicious.
So today, I talked to my friend Pat, who’s lived here all her life – so far.
She said that hnngghh are haymen, an Eastern Shore delicacy. And there’s apparently a very distinct way to treat, cook and enjoy the haymen. I took a video of Pat explaining. Click here to see it on YouTube.
