Many people eat egusi with rice. I don't know about Hausas, but it's common among Yorubas and Ibos(at least the ones I know)

Do you have any idea how long ground apon lasts if kept in the freezer. I have had some for over 2 years. Should I throw it out?

This is more my thing. Here goes. I have come across like 6 different ways of preparing Egusi soup Iwill however put one acoss to you. This is called Efere Ikon.It is a calabar version of preparing the soup.

Ingredients:

1 cup of egusi; 1 cigarette cup of crayfish, 2 small onions, Ikg meat, periwinkles(optional) good stockfish, bitterleaves to ur taste.

Lets talk method.

Boil meat and/or fish in a little water after a while add a little more water.

Add all other ingredients except crayfish . Allow to simmer. Add palmoil.(You may add potash to reduce bitterness of the leaves, if ur stomach tolerates it) Leave to cook for about 10mins.Add crayfish and simmer for another 5 minutes. Serve with eba,fufu,pounded yam, semolina,ground rice. Infact whatever takes your fancy. Hope this helps. Watch out for this up-coming blog on varying your regular cooking for variety.

Today, I have successfully cooked Egusi Soup!

Thanks to recipe provide by @Stillwater, I was able to cook a pot of Egusi soup. I once tried without guidance during my University days and the result was nothing to write home about. Since then, I gave up. Today, i finally summoned courage and searched for egusi soup in Nairaland and the result is shown below. I enjoyed it thoroughly. Sorry, pictures not too sharp as I had to resize them.
