Ghana

I'd spend a lot of time on a Ghana post but it is Friday night, and I need to get some sleep before the matches tomorrow.  I'll make this quick.

Food in Ghana involves diverse traditional dishes from each ethnic group, tribe, and clan. Ghanaian cuisine involves dishes which are made up of a starchy portion.

Food in Ghana also includes an excellent sauce or soup which is saturated with meat, mushrooms. fish and snails.Ghana cuisines vary from place to place i.e from north to the south and from the east to west.The starchy portion which forms the major part of the Food of Ghana are of various types. They are jollof rice (to the right with beek kebabs), fufu, banku, tuo, gigi, akplidzii, yekeyeke, etew,and ato. Along with this a sauce is a regular feature of their food which is saturated mainly with fish and snails.

Most of the Ghanaian dishes comprise a stew which is based on tomato with different proteins in it.  Among the soups that are consumed the most popular ones are groundnut (peanut) soup, light soup, palm nut soup and okra soup which is also a popular stew.

Akpeteshie is a Ghanaian kind of schnapps. It is made from distilled palm sap similarly to palm wine. In the rural areas, it is common to make a blend of herbs and roots and pour Akpeteshie over it. After one day, the bitters are ready, which is really what Ghana people like.  A very popular one is Alomo Bitters. People claim that this drink is not only tasty, but medicine against all kind of diseases.  The pictures show some Akpeteshie stills.
