|Moringa Pods on the Tree|
There were several pods ready for harvesting on the moringa tree and I picked them, this weekend:
Not a bad harvest at all! There are a few more pods on the tree, that haven't matured enough to be picked. I think you can see why these pods are also known as "drumsticks" in English.
You have to lightly peel or scrape off most of the green outer peel before cutting the pods into shorter lengths for cooking. I peeled about half of the pods, on Sunday, and cooked them. I wanted to peel and cook all of them at once, but, my hand began to cramp up after I had peeled about half and then, I had to stop. I will peel and cook the rest, tomorrow, and then, I am going to freeze some of it.
I posted about making moringa curry here,
It was a quiet and peaceful weekend.
I am grateful for:
- Being able to grow and harvest moringa pods
- A quiet weekend
- Sleeping in
- No noisy parties in the neighborhood
- Chats with family and friends
Joyful activities have included harvesting moringa pods and sewing.
Hope everyone had a lovely weekend.
