How to Make Your Own Homemade Ground Spices

Freshly ground spices is just too fantastically flavorsome! Bottled spices has NOTHING on homemade ground spices! Nothing kwraa!  

Best way to grind up spices is to use a dry mill machine. We got a Kenwood food processor sometime ago which had an additional two-blade dry grinder mill. It's great for grinding all kinds of spices, herbs and nuts.  

How I Started My Backyard Garden By Using Recycled Car Tyres.

I just got fed up one day after visiting the market. Things are getting expensive. I am talking about basic ingredients for making a great meal. Tomatoes which are being imported from Burkina Faso always seem to be getting more expensive. Onions which always gives my gravies extra flavor keeps skyrocketing. As for Kpakposhito, I was almost insulted in Makola for asking the market woman to ‘wo mli’ ( top up). 1 cedi wouldn’t even last two stews.

My solution? To go back to creating my own backyard farm, yes! It wouldn’t be the first time. When I was in Ridge Church School, we were taught how to make vegetable beds and plant vegetables. I was so enthused that I took this idea back home and told my Dad I wanted to plant carrots and lettuce. And I did! It was such a rewarding experience which I now want to bring back.
