Recipe Description
Corn, known to the Africans as Maize or Mealies, is used in countless ways: pounded into corn flour, cornstarch, and cornmeal or cooked whole and cut from the cob. The Africans combine corn with other starchy products such as rice, beans, and mashed potatoes as in Irio, the national dish of Kenya, and as in this African succotash.
