The principal ingredients of Sullage are the golden Sul, the starchy, golden-brown, vine-borne fruit of the golden-leaved Sul plant; the curled, red, ovate leaves of the Tur-pa, a tree parasite, cultivated in host orchids of Tur trees; and the salty, blue secondary roots of the Kes Shrub, a small, deeply rooted plant which grows best in sandy soil.

Sugar

There are various colors of sugars, though their flavors are never spoken of. There is specifically mentioned four Gorean sugars though only two, white and yellow, are ever mentioned by color.

Lola now returned to the small table and, kneeling, head down, served us our dessert, slices of tospit, sprinkled with four Gorean sugars.
Rogue of Gor, page 132

With a tiny spoon, its tip no more than a tenth of a hort in diameter, she placed four measures of white sugar, and six of yellow, in the cup; with two stirring spoons, one for the white sugar, another for the yellow, she stirred the beverage after each measure.
Tribesmen of Gor, page 89



Tasta

Small, round, succulent candy coated in syrup or fudge and then mounted upon a stick for easy handling and eating. Literal translation is "stick candy."

He yelled something raucous and ribald. It had to do with "tastas" or "stick candies." These are not candies, incidentally, like sticks, as, for example, licorice or peppermint sticks, but soft, rounded, succulent candies, usually covered in a coating of syrup or fudge, rather in the nature of the caramel apple, but much smaller, and, like the caramel apple, mounted on sticks. The candy is prepared and then the stick, from the bottom, is thrust up, deeply, into it. It is then ready to be eaten.
Dancer of Gor, page 8


Vegetables: These include such vegetables similar to Earth ones like cabbage, carrot, corn, garlic, mushroom, onions, peas, peppers, pumpkins, radish, squash, and turnips. There are also vegetables indigenous to Gor such as katch, korts, suls and vangis. Katch is a foliated leaf vegetable, likely similar to lettuce, cabbage or spinach. The kort is a brown and thick-skinned, sphere-shaped vegetable which is about six inches wide. The interior is yellow, fibrous and heavily seeded. It grows in the Tahari region and is often served sliced with melted cheese and nutmeg. Suls are a tuberous vegetable like a potato. They are large, thick-skinned, starchy, and yellow-fleshed. There are a thousand ways to prepare and serve suls. Vangis are an unknown type of produce. They are mentioned though never described in the novels.

Wakapapi: This is a word in the languages of the Red Savages that means "pemmican." Pemmican is a word used by the Native Americans of Earth to describe a certain type of food, similar to the one on Gor. Pemmican are soft cakes, made in various ways depending on what one adds in the way of meat, herbs, seasonings and fruit. One common way on Gor is to take strips of dried kailiauk meat, thinly sliced, and pounded fine almost to a powder. Then you add crushed fruit, commonly chokecherries, to the meat. This is then mixed with kailiauk fat and then divided into small, flattish, rounded cakes. It is normally carried by hunting or war parties.
Spices: There are many spices including nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves, spikenard, various salts including red and yellow salt, and hot peppers. The Tahari is known for very spicy foods.
