This time it features as the letter 'H' in our ongoing Pict-ionary where we try to highlight some interesting facets of our African and Caribbean Foods and Drinks in picture cards.
My first encounter with these 'leaves' as I would call them, was in Zaria, Northern Nigeria. It was used to make a really lovely drink with cloves, ginger and a sweetener or none depending on one's choice. It was truly refreshing. It wasn't like one of those drinks you would be looking for something to wash off the after taste. (Some comumunities use the green versions to make soup too)
Follow the link to my earlier blog to see how Imma of Immaculate bites makes this drink. (https://fallysfoodhut.blogspot.com/2016/12/a-festive-drink-from-caribbeangoing.html)
You can make your own version and as suggested in the picture card, you could add it warm, to your Christmas Dinner this year.
How about it?
Thanks for joining us at The Food Hut today.
See you soon.😃
