Eating African

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Well, almost. Maybe its common knowledge maybe not but it was the africans who invented deep frying. And when they came to the new world and brought thier deep fring teqhnique alot of native american food which were up to now boiled or bbqd where given new life. Like boring old boiled root vegetables or cornmeal mush became fried delicasees. So tonight im eating African with fried yucca root and fried polenta with Griot(heavily seasoned pork chunks) also fried. Very spicy, very good. Yea im smoking too but that stuff wont be ready for qview for a while. This for now.

Haha, tell you the truth, I was cooking yucca LONG before I knew how to peel it correctly. But anyways im a native NewYorker down here in south florida.
Sancocho!! We gotta get a thread going for that. mm mm. Beleive it or not I make sancocho at work(retirement community) for the old folks. They dont know what the hell it is but they know its goood. I make it there with smoked turkey necks, beef short ribs, chicken thighs and of course boniatos, yucca, plantains(sweet and green), corn etc etc. you know it goes. Best soup ever.

cooking it before you knew how to peel it..lol..that was ruff..
your sancocho sounds great..smoked is even better. but it is smoked a little differnt then the folks here are used to..
in a big caldron we would start a wood fire and set her on top as she boiled, the smoke from the fire would kiss the boiling water and and mix with it..that was some great rainy day fare.
really enjoyed your post..whos say's you can'nt teach big city folks jungle cuisine... lol....
