Description

This is a traditional South African Samp (mngqusho) and Beans (mbotyi) recipe. My amaXhosa friend, Ntombizanele Sokupa, gave this recipe to our family and we thought it was delicious. Samp is the same thing as hominy, except the kernels are cracked into a few pieces. The samp and beans can be and are commonly soaked overnight, but my friend says it will still take 2 hours to cook and the flavor is not as good this way. Without pre-soaking the samp and beans it will take 3-4 hours to cook at medium heat. This recipe can take a lot of time, but it tastes great!
