Staple food used to be the pride of a certain area, but now is no more. Cultures have blended together making many adapt to the food of other areas.
Corncakes used to be a favorite and the staple food of my native land. Should you not know what corncakes are then here it is-
One needs water to measure example two liters for 5 people.
You also need corn flour. It is ground from maize. The flour should be slightly more than the water.
Boil the water till it is steaming hot.
Add little flour at a time as you stir it.
Do not remove the mixture from the fire but continue adding and stirring till it is hard.
When it is to your desirable hardness, cover with a metal container and allow it to bake till a sweet aroma emanates from the cake.
Remove from the fire and serve with meat stew, chicken, fish or vegetable stew.
We eat the cake with bare hands.
The meal is very delicious. That is the staple food of my native land. Do you still have your staple food? What is it? How is it prepared and eaten?
