Wow! Wow!! Wow!!!
Today's activity was a bit stressful, tiresome, and muscles shifting 😂
We processed our local garri today and I will be teaching you how that is possible here at home.
Garri is a product gotten from cassava. It can be used in making eba for soups. Actually a lot of products can be gotten from cassava but that is not our main emphasis today. The main thing today is garri, how to process our local garri from cassava.
Harvest the cassava from the farm
Peel the cassava, wash off the dirt
Grind the cassava and put it in a bag, preferably Rice's bag or bird's feed bag so that the water from the grinded cassava will drain out
After that, lay the cassava bags on an engine or machine for pressing. You can leave it for a day inside the machine, so it can be well pressed and dried
when the cassava is well dried, you sieve it. By sieving the cassava, you are separating it from its chaff
After sieving the cassava,
You warm the pot for frying
Then scoop the sieved cassava into the warm pot and start frying. Fry until it is very light with fine texture
After frying, the garri is ready. You just need to scoop it out of the hot pot into a well conversed container for preservation.
And you can now use your fried Garri with hot to make eba for soup. As well as with cold water for sipping, with your condiments like milk, sugar, groundnut, coconut, chocolate, banana and lots more.
Remember making of Garri is always tedious and time consuming, so you can also get an extra hand to help in the process of preparation.
