Wash the picked leaves with water twice, drain and turn in a pot. Add water to the leaves, cover the pot and set on heat. Allow to boil for 6-7 minutes.

When the time is up, strain using a basket. Pour some cold water over it then squeeze till its rid of all the water. Then put in a plate.

You see that from the  beginning f this article to the end, I didn’t add water to it. This is because water is not needed in the preparation of this sauce.

That was quite easy and fast too right? Lots more coming with Dorcas at Dee’s Mealz.
