Are your everyday cereals starting to taste a bit predictable? Pour milk and sugar on gari and enjoy a new take on the most important meal of the day.
Gari makes a great snack or a side-dish. In Ghana, Gari is eaten as a side dish with plantain and beans, rice and beans and other dishes.
The Main Course
Gari makes a great main course. In Nigeria, a delicious plate of Eba and Egusi soup is a treat anyone would enjoy
To make gari, cassava plants are harvested, peeled, cut up into smaller chunks, blended and dehydrated in a process that can sometimes take days. What's left after the excess water is drained is then slowly roasted and stirred intermittently until it turns to Gari grains.
A search on the web will tell you gari has an average shelf life of about 6 months, however when properly sealed, gari can last for years, making it a great choice for doomsday preppers the world over. 🙂
Most gari you'll buy on the market is packaged in sealed plastic bags that are typically not re-sealable once opened. This makes it difficult to store gari once purchased. Maria's Foods' gari comes exquisitely packaged in screw-top plastic containers. Did we mention the spectacular quality?
