How To Preserve Uma Broad Moi Moi Leaves By Debbie

Refrigerated uma moi moi leaves
 Hello Ma Eya.
I stumbled on a trick and decided to share its goodness with you.
I've been craving and eating moi-moi since the day I took in,followed by Igba Oka(Corn pudding or corn moi-moi) and believe me this things taste like bottom pot when wrapped/cooked with uma leaves.

Two weeks ago while removing my leaves from the fridge to make Igba-oka, I suddenly realized it's been like two months since I bought it in bulk and

that was the last batch.
How did I do it? Simple
1. Get your Uma leaves, two nylon bags, one rubber band.
2. Roll your leaves and put in one nylon, use the second one to cover/overlap from the open end of the leaf.
3. Use your rubber band to hold them together at the overlap.

    I preserve mine with newspaper and put in d fridge and it preserves, I ve never calculated how long its been there but it worked 4 me.

  2. Yes oh! Way to go Debs!
    That's the way we preserve ours in the freezer except that we don't make use of any protective covering.

    The advantage of using this preservation is that it makes the leaves softer and manageable(for the tough ones).

    Well done debbie!

    I remember this,you can also preserve ripe plantain properly wrapped with news paper and put in the fridge it can last for as long as you want.

    1. For real? Always scared of bulk buying plantain coz it goes dead soft easily but I'll try this. Thanx for the tip

  5. Sorry to deviate from this topic,but how do a lady manage a man who is under pressure? because its month end, and have seriously budgeted for this month pocket money don't want any pinch of quarrel at this time at all. Thou he's not telling me what has being on ground,but i can understand he can be very and extremely busy. I simply told him i was pissed with his not calling attitude and the next i got,his words exactly " U don't know hw to manage a man under pressure" no question mark,but a direct hit. How do i manage him under pressure becos the biz Admin i studied,that topic can't be found in any of my course material except,the ability to work under pressure. I need to add this skill to my criteria like seriously. Thanks for you help WC
