Ingredient of the week

Baobab is what is commonly know in Swahili as ‘mabuyu’. If you grew up in the city you may have eaten these snack as a young child on your way from school. Baobab has an intense flavour of sourness that you need when varying your food item flavour in the kitchen.

It is rich source of vitamin C, which makes it a high source of antioxidants. It is a good addition to anyone who has osteoporosis ,

struggles with gluten intolerance or even diabetes. I have used it many times in varying the flavour of juices, soups and stews in my kitchen. It is a must have in the home. It is a sure ingredient that should never miss in your shopping basket.
