Berbere's Harissa shrouded in history

Posted on November 09, 2012 by Rosie Fenech

Subsistence farming produces seasonal harvests due to different weather patterns across the globe. During rainy season, there will be plently of food of different sorts including chilli. Through human ingenuity, Africans have been able to process food without chemicals or preservatives to make them available during times of scarcity. A typical example of this is Harissa 'Atta Din Din' which is a tradition of the Berbers, Yorubas, Jollof people just to name a few. Different types of chillis, herbs & spices will be carefully cooked in clay pots until there is no water there. Pots will be topped up with Palm Fruit Oil and will provide the most exclusive chilli condiment until the next season.
