Palm oil forests of Siaya
No, I’m not talking about West Africa or those on an island in lake Victoria. Palm oil forests exist sorry ‘thrive’ well in Siaya. Birds of prey and girls love their white seeds that taste like coconut – simply, addictive!!!
Small like a nut but very tasty, you’ll just want to keep popping one in the mouth..
The fruit is dark maroon and is used for cooking oil and soaps
When pressed by hand they leave that distinctive
yellow-red oil on your fingers.
Next time you are in Siaya insist on natural palm oil for your cooking or ‘palm oil coconut’ for snacks 😉
