How to prepare Palmnut Soup

Palm Nut soup, a delicacy made from Palm fruits is enjoyed by many for its delicious taste and satisfying nature.Although preparing Palm Nut soup originally can be quite tedious and may take a while, all the effort is well worth it.

Follow these steps to learn how to prepare. Ingredients for palm nut soup; 1 Olonka of palmnuts, kwansusua, Meat, Smoked fish(adwene), Salmons, 6 Onions, 6 Tomatoes, 10 kpakpo shito and 10 pepper, 1 Ginger (thumb size), 2 Garlic cloves, 3 Maggi cubes.

Now to the procedure

Pick out husks from Palm fruit and wash with clean water.Place in a large pot and boil for about 45 minutes to an hour until it is soft enough to fall off the nut when squeezed between you thumb and fore finger.

In the meantime wash the smoked fish and the meat and cut them into small pieces.Blend the ginger, garlic, pepper, and 3 onion. Pour the mix over the meat and smoked fish. Crumble 1 maggi cube and salt (preferably) over it and steam. Allow it to cook until meat softens.

Pound the palm fruits in a mortar until it looks fibrous and the black kernels are loose.

Pour it all out into a large bowl add about a litre of hot water. The water shouldn't be so hot that you cant put your hand into it. The heat from the water will help to seperate the edible part of the palmnut from the fibers and kernels. So using your hand, take the fiber part bit by bit and squeeze the liquid out and set aside. Then remove the kernels, shaking off the liquid back into the bowl. Keep doing this until you have mostly liquid with a few fibers in it.Now place a colander over a pot or bowl and gently pour the palmnut mixture into it. Rinse out the colander and place over a different pot or bowl and gently repeat the process. Do this 3 or 4 times till you have no bits in the bottom of the bowl.Now pour it over the steaming meat and let it continue to cook together with 3 washed tomatoes and 3 onions over a high fire.Remove the 3 tomatoes and 3 onions and blend it, then add it to the big pot of goodness. Add the remaining 2 cubes and some salt according to your taste. Add the salmon at this stage and reduce the heat. Stir carefully so you dont break the fish. Cook for 10 to 15 minutes longer and it is ready.Palm Nut soup can be served with Fufu, Banku, Rice balls, Yam, Eba, etc.
