baby4u2,

the reason you can identify it is because your from there. for the rest of us who are not

indigenes of that area unless we travel there we won't be sure we're getting the real

thing.

Yam can be boiled with sugar, or sugar and salt together.

Any way you want it.

Or just plain salt.

Ever tried this sauce.

1. Onion sauce, Fast and easy: Just hit a little oil, put a lot of onions in the oil add maggie or salt to tasteeeeeeeee not to consume the taste oh. Stir fry until the onions are soft not burnt. Enjoy it with boiled yam.

2. Tomatoes sauce: Cut tomatoes, onions, hot fresh pepper and red bell pepper. Hit oil, and add your cut fresh t, h, p, r into the oil, add maggie, curry and any other spice you think you may like, but I suggest you keep it simple. Stir fry, taste to see if it is right, and enjoy with boiled yam or fried yam.

3. One way to eat yam again, is to boil it with sugar. Taste sweet.

4. Another way is to boil the yam, let it stand out for about 5mins, then fry it. It has a better taste that way.

5. Eat boiled yam with vegetable oil and salt or palm oil (although i dont like the palm oil)

6. Fried egg, with medemede added to the egg is better with boiled yam. Fried yam is better with stewwww. Anyway this are just my eating habits with yam. I hungry now.

If your husband t be is from Delta, i'm sure he'll prefer it the way Delta prepare theirs.

Hear's the ingredient.

Potash

Native salt (it looks almost like potash)

Native Starch or yam to thicken

Dry fish/Meat/Snail (whichever u prefer) Dry fish is a must

Periwinkle

Palm Oil

Crayfish

Pepper (preferably dried)

Salt and seasoning

Note: If you are preparing in the Delta way, you do not need to add tomatoes

*Cook meat with seasoning (Maggie etc, do not use curry & thyme) add the fish to steam a little, after washing washing properly with salt.

*Add palm oil into the boiling water ( you can choose to drain the meet and fish out of the cooked sauce water or leave it in,.which ever way, no qualms)

*Grind the potash and add to the boiling water while stirring, at this time it mite foam a little, just turn the heat down low

*Wait for about five minutes, then add a little starch (starch should be dissolved in water like u do when preparing pap) Stir till its smooth, then wait for another five to ten minutes

*Then add paper to your taste, Maggie and crayfish

*Add periwinkle after washing properly, probably in salt and warm water. The periwinkle should be the last item you add

*Allow to cook for like ten minutes and voila, you Owo soup is ready.

*NOTE: Allow to cool off very well before covering, else it mite dissolve and become watery

Yam with Spiced Porridge Sauce:

Sauce Ingredients: Yam, salt, pepper, vegetables (Pumpkin or Green) seasoning cube (ie: maggi or knorr, etc), palm oil, onions, garlic, ginger and (stock fish or ice fish or meat)

Boil the yam, wash cut and put the vegetables in boiling yam, add salt, pepper.

Cut and add fresh garlic, ginger fish/meat. Add seasoning and palm oil as appropriate. let the volume of water be such that it very low when the preparation is done.

When yam is very soft, bring it down and mesh the yam - your onions sauce is ready

Can be eaten with Yam or Rice

Yam & Goat Meat Pepper Soup:

Boil the meat add pepper, salt, onion, garlic and a sachet of indomie flavour, boil till done

Add Scent Leaf (Calabar calls it Ntong), fresh pepper and boil till it becomes pepper soup

Enjoy it with your Yam

Yam & Groundnut Sauce:

Grind/blend 1 cup of groundnut with the red peel.

Boil meat till done.

Fry oil - just as in making stew, then add onions,

Mix the grounded groundnut in water with sliced onions, salt, pepper, maggi, ice fish - if you like add ginger &/or garlic to boost scent - make the preparation thick.

Then pour the mixture into the boiling oil

Add meat - optional

When done, serve with yam. It can also go with Rice or Rice/Beans mixture.

Try yams with beans you will wish to have the same the combination the whole year but you need frequent de-worming and visits to the clinic. Besides, you have to get your own care because gassing for others wont be a got thing since you can not avoid it when you take them.

Saltfish goes well with many things. I like Saltfish with white rice and fried yam. Nothing hits the spot like that.

I know you asked for delta people, but I am bini and know exactly what your talking about. Owo is mostly eaten with plantain, and it's great with yam. I remixed it and did it my own style by having it with rice. It was soo delicious. I had it this morning. Yummy.

nice.

Also, the Nigerian variety of garden egg tastes better than the long purple American one. At least when eating it with yam. The taste is stronger and better.

                                           THE FIRST PART

(1)Yam,salt or sugar,water.Put water on the fire and add enough sugar,peel the yam(preferable  cut into smaller bits)wash and add to the boiling water,the water should not be much so that the water drys up when the yam,so people sieve the water out but is better for the water to dry with the yam.

                       

                                          THE SECOND PART

(2)Garden eggs,vegetable oil,salt,tomatoes,pepper(if the unripe ones are available,good)crayfish,fish,fresh shrimps,knorr,onions.

put water on the fire,add garden eggs,put tomates,pepper,crayfish in a clean rubber bag,add to the garden egg on the fire,allow to cook.Peel the fresh shrimps,clean the fish.when the garden egg is cooked remove and put in cool water and peel of the skin along with the tomatoes,put the peeled garden egg,pepper,peeled tomatoes and crayfish in a bowl and mash.Put oil on the fire,add dice onoins,mashed crayfish,mashed tomatoes,mashed pepper,fish ,shrimps,salt and knorr and allow to cook,then add mashed garden egg and stir,and allow to cook for like 5mins then is ready to be serve with the yam.This is way i like it,others prepare theirs differently.
