Arrowroot (Maranta arundinacea) – this plant is fairly well known for its pure white starch product that can be purchased in most grocery stores. The rhizomes are fairly fibrous, meaning some level of processing is certainly required, which limits its potential as a root crop. However, arrowroot is a beautiful landscaping plant and is easily cultivated.

OUR WORK

The Utopian Seed Project has been growing arrowroot for a number of years, mainly working with root stock from board member, Yanna Fishman. In 2019 we began exploring the culinary potential of arrowroot based on some late 19th Century references to Arrowroot Pudding. Board member, Jamie Swofford, and baker Keia Mastrianni, worked to create a modern take on arrowroot pudding for our 2019 Trial to Table Farm Dinner. The delicious creation made it onto Dr. David Shields Top 10 food experiences of 2019!
