Here is a Dooney’s Kitchen Tip left by a reader Crystal, who deserves a big hug from me. Kaun, edible potash is not particular a good ingredient to cook with. Kaun is sued in many of our recipes from Ewedu to Ila Asepo (Okro soup), Abacha, Nkwobi, Ekuru, Masa and so many more I’m sure.
If you’ve stayed away from these delicious foods because of your aversion to Kaun, well all that is about to change, thanks to Crystal who left a comment under my Abacha post. You can roast the peels of unripe plantains, and use the ashes. I haven’t tried it myself, but I intend to. I’m sure Crystal won’t leave that kind of comment if she is not sure it will work. If you try this before I do, please, please let me know how it turned out. If you like Crystal know about this tip, share your experience with me please. Thanks
So, here are my recipes with Kaun you can now safely try
