  3. I love peanut bars. I have a story to tell about 'beef crackers'. Each time I travel to Naija, I always make sure I bring back loads of kilishi aka beef crackers. Dem no dey sell am for Mma Eliza land so I gats to stock up for a rainy day. We have a tradition at work that anyone who travels brings back something from their journey for the team. Others bring chocolates back mostly but I decided to be different and bring back some kilishi so they get to taste some Naija food.

    O the joy!! whats this Uddes - they ask? Oh its dried beef - preserved with scotcg bonnet. The naija equivalent of the South African Biltong aka beef jerky. Can I have some they respond. Oh yes please - knock your self out. But I must warn you it is a little bit spicy.

    Ok. colleague cuts a little kilishi and pops in his/her mouth. Ummm nice but a bit spicy ummmmm - they say. I watch as they turn bright red and then run off to look for some milk. *sigh* why do we like and stand pepper and our oyibo friends cant?
