Cassava Bread Baking



Cassava bread baking is a lot of hard work, but the women make it easier by teaming up.
It starts with the going to the farm to harvest the Cassava (which is a ground food) The Cassava is then brought home , where it is being peeled, washed, grated, strained, made to fine powder, which then is ready for baking.
During the process, the women would be singing away to the favorite Garifuna songs, without knowing the work would be all over and the Cassava bread is ready to be eaten with soup, or just like that, with a little honey or milk on the top.
Cassava bread can last for days and it will still be good to eat.

Testimonials

I purchased 3 CD's from Garinet, Malia Polia by Jimmy Suazo, Agrupacion by Solis, and the CD dedicated to my late uncle, Isabel Flores sung by Pen Cayetano and Mohobub Flores. I am still enjoying those CD's and hope to purchase more from Garinet. I like that fact that I did not have to wait 2-3 weeks for the products, I received them within 4 days of purchase.
