Still on Lassa Fever!

…Garri Ijebu, ready for ‘smoking’!
HEY! THE FEAR OF LASSA FEVER IS NOW SEEN AS THE BEGINNING OF WISDOM  IN VIRTUALLY EVERY  NOOK AND CRANNY OF  THE MOST POPULOUS BLACK RACE IN THE ENTIRE WORLD – NIGERIA.
NEWS MAKING ROUND IS STRESSING THE NEED FOR THE POPULACE TO ABSTAIN FROM CONSUMING GARRI FOR NOW!
 
THIS IS BECAUSE SOUTHERN NIGERIANS LOVE GARRI A GREAT DEAL, ESPECIALLY  ‘SMOKING’ THE STUFF WITH THE LIKES OF GROUNDNUTS, MILK AND SUGAR AS WELL AS HONEY.
FOR LOVERS OF GARRI!
..see what I mean!
ITS A TIME OF SERIOUS CAUTION, WHY BECAUSE GARRI IS NOT USUALLY COOKED BEFORE IT IS RELISHED…  AND IT HAS BEEN OBSERVED THAT MOST GARRI WE BUY FROM THE MARKETS ARE USUALLY EXPOSED.
 
EVEN THE ONES IN SACKS MUST HAVE HAVE PASSED THROUGH SO MUCH PROCESS FROM THE THE FARMS IN THE VILLAGES, WHERE RATS WOULD HAVE DEFECATED OR  DANCED ON THEM WITHOUT YOUR KNOWLEDGE… YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN?IMAGINE ALL YOU CAN BUT DO NOT ABHOR THIS PROUDLY NIGERIAN/AFRICAN DELICACY,  JUST ABSTAIN  FOR A WHILE!

GARRI, WHETHER ‘IJEBU’ OR THE  VITAMIN C FORTIFIED YELLOW TYPE, IF NOT PROPERLY COOKED IS SAID TO BE SUSCEPTIBLE TO THE VIRUS!

HMMMN, AND MOST TIMES, ALL YOU DO IS SOAK IN WATER AND ‘SMOKE’ WITH SUGAR, MILK OR GROUNDNUT! SOME EVEN SERVE ALONGSIDE COOKED BEANS.

WELL, REPORTS REACHING GOURMET GUIDE IS SAYING BE CAREFUL.  AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE COOK YOUR GARRI AS EBA – SWALLOW VERY WELL  OVER HEAT FOR A WHILE BEFORE EATING! THE COOKING WOULD HELP TO KILL ANY UNWANTED, UNSEEN VIRUS ‘RESIDENT WITHIN’! 
A WORD, THEY SAY  IS ENOUGH FOR THE  WISE!

HAVE A GREAT DAY!
