Cooking Plantain in the Village and a Good Recipe

2020-2-8 Alepe District Mtg Saturday (163)

The last stop we made on our village wander was in this compound where we found only two young children.  They said their parents were out in the fields.  They were in their outdoor kitchen with some large stocks of ripening plantain.

Plantain ripening–the darker it gets, the sweeter it is!

In this last compound visit, we saw this lovely bamboo work.  Eveque Mel explained that this is the “nice” bamboo.  It grows even and straight.

The other larger bamboo is used for many things here, including drying laundry.

And that concluded our village wander today.  It was time to get back to the church for the next meetings to begin.
