WHY PALM OIL IS ESSENTIAL IN THE KITCHEN……
Some years back, my daughter started coughing in the night, by then most pharmacy have closed for the day.I was so worried and scared that i had to start knocking at my neighbor’s door a mother of three kids.She now told me to mix palm oil and sugar which i was reluctant at first, but out of desperation i had to rush to the kitchen mix the palm oil and sugar in a table spoon and give to my daughter to drink.Within 5 minutes she was sound asleep with out coughing till morning
A friend of mine equally solved her skin issues from palm oil. Which helped her to bring back her bleached skin to normal.She bought a cream which did not just bleach her skin but brought out rash all over her body that do itch her a lot,she was even thinking its a spiritual attack, before an older man asked her to start rubbing palm oil all over her body and lick a little every night before she sleeps.Amazingly within days the itching stopped and the rash cleared.
Palm oil can help in many ways,it is an antidote for poison especially the oil that comes out from the palm fruits that have know kernel in it, called (Nkwu ojukwu) in some part of Ibo land.
COOKING WITH PALM OIL…………..
When am preparing soups like(Ofe.. Owerri) Ofe, means soup in Igbo land, and (Banga soup) Banga means palm fruit in delta all in southern part of Nigeria, i love to use the palm fruit and squeeze out the natural oil myself, the taste it gives to soup makes you want to eat again and again.
Frying with palm oil makes my fries crispy and crunchy, i love the taste it gives to AKARA..(BEAN CAKE)yum..yum..With the rate of imported processed oil, using palm oil for my fries is healthy for me.
Always have a bottle of good quality palm oil in the kitchen.
