Ever recycled eba?You know,the yellow(or white) end product of the reaction between garri and good old H2O?I have.In these days of environmental consciousness,I thought it was worthwhile to explore the possible alternative uses of left over eba.
Put eba in large bowl.
Add large amount of water.
Soak until done.Hopefully someone will offer you something else to eat before then.
Scrounge for spare lumps of sugar (always a prized commodity).
Wait.If no fumes from bowl,try first spoon.
Wait.Ensure no gagging(very important,you can't afford to waste).
Proceed to dig in,till hunger propitiated.
Save some for later:D
Joking?Well,the save some for later bit.Not the rest though:just one of several delicacies I was introduced to in boarding school.Believe me,several times I was hungry enough to try pretty much anything.Garri in all its flavours was a staple.Garri with sugar,garri with salt,garri with crayfish and pepper,garri with cabin biscuits,garri without (otherwise known as naked garri).During my boarding school years I drank enough garri to win medals.And I wasn't alone.Anybody eat anything worse?
