It was imperative that both my visitors had opportunities to try Ghanaian cuisine whilst they were here. As I have said before, most Ghanaian dishes are an acquired taste. They survived Groundnut Soup and Fufu, but also Redred (Beans cooked in Palm Oil), Rice Balls (sticky rice), Palava Sauce (Identical to Sag Aloo in your local Indian take away) and fried & grilled Plantain (like unsweet banana). I tried Kamfor (sweet white blancmange made from maize and wrapped in banana leaf, Mpotopoto (mashed yam with palm oil and strips of beef, like a very thick broth....nursery food)), and a skewer full of grilled snails! I was only asking what they were selling at the side of the road and within moments Francis had bought some. A little over rated and would have been better sauteed in butter and garlic! I shall not bother with them again.
In Liate Wote we came across this calabash tree. These "fruits" are the size of water melons and only the outer casing is used, as bowls. The white substance inside has no use, apparently. Unusual here where everything is useful for something!
