There are so many little known secrets and delights in African cuisine! In fact, the African cuisine is one of the last unexplored frontiers of world cuisine. One of these delicacies is dear: hates her!
What is Hates?
A woman Order peanuts. She roasts them, li quid in a wooden mortar and then, on a stone, millstone, millstone la briciola dissolved into a paste. You can do the same with simsim roast-a kind of grain, or a mixture of roasted peanuts and simsim. The result is a dark brown paste.
That is Hatred.
The woman would be from Acholi tribe in Uganda, or from one of the tribes of Northern Uganda who also speak Acholi.
The Acholi are a tribe found in northern Uganda. The Nilotes, and, according to their folklore, came down the Nile from Egypt. They tend to be sparely built, tall and dark-skinned.
Food centres Acholi Grievances.
The Acholi traditionally eat very healthily and with great variety. Eat lots of vegetables, like a bean variety cowpeas-rossi, kidney, pink, black and yellow-as-peas, green and yellow peas and peas lapena, as well as various lentils. The pulses are eaten fresh, immediately after harvest, but are also Sun-dried for later use.
Well-dried pulses can last a long time. In former times, each farm was a barn built well-above the Earth, where were stored dry food products.
Besides the Acholi, eat fish-fresh and dried, as well as the meat. In the past, hunters would you like dry smoke their booty-meat of wild game such as antelope – and want to feed their families during times of low water. Smoked meat, such as legumes, they need a long time to Cook, but can last almost always without damage and without the benefit of a refrigerator.
All the food was cooked in a similar fashion. It was boiled with water until ready. Some stocks was mixed with Hatred just did make a thick sauce and creamy, olel call. The rest of the food was then added to the sauce.
The Acholi serve their sauces with millet bread, bread, corn flour, manioc or sweet potatoes.
The importance of the Acholi cultural Hatred is betrayed by many things. In the past, the amount of Hatred the sauce was a clear sign of the time of year and the economic status of the family just then. A subtle Hatred or salsa-olel meant that there were tough times.
The family was doing wrong-maybe they had a meager harvest or suffered some other calamity, or the whole community was undergoing hard times, like the drought. A general olel thinness should be experienced during the dry season, or just before the harvest, when many families were just short of food supplies. Or during a severe drought.
For the Acholi, the most fitting description for the worst thing that could happen was when you had to eat a lot of food and without Hatred. For example, “famine or drought when we ate lots of food”.
A beautiful girl among the Acoli was one with an elastic waist. It meant that you could grind good hates her fast, and she could dance traditional dances-which involved a lot of movement of life.
A girl might make a special reputation if she could grind fast Hatred-peanuts or simsim paste without pounding, and if she could do it really lumpy and not liquid.
Cleanliness was very important when preparing hates. There was nothing worse than being caught licking his fingers while grinding (grinding process got quite messy towards the end the Hatred became more liquid). No one would ever again eat food prepared with your Hatred. And if you were unmarried, just did great damage to the chances of a good suitor!
Hatred was also used to describe the beauty. The most luxurious form of Hatred was pure Hatred from well roasted peanuts without burning. This was often prepared during good times-generous times-especially as snacks to visitors. Peanuts hates her is served with sweet plantains, cassava or boiled sweet potatoes boiled in salty snacks-like, or mixed with wild honey as sweet snacks.
Peanuts hates her is light golden in color and consistency. To be described as having a complexion like peanuts Hatred is a great compliment.
On the contrary, hard times Grievances made by Halima. Simsim is indefinable Hatred dark color and tends to be lumpy in texture. Is suitable only for making olel.
Like everything else in these changing times, cooking Acoli is changing. But Hatred remains at the center of it.
