Ingredients Edit

  • 1 cup dried maize kernels (samp)
  • 1/2 cup dried beans (brown/Sugar/red speckled)
  • Several pinches of salt (to taste)
  • 1 desert spoon margarine/olive oil (optional)

Directions Edit

  1. Clean the samp and beans by stirring in water and rinsing
  2. Put the samp and beans in a pot/saucepan and cover with water to a level at least double that of the samp and beans
  3. Bring to the boil and then remove from heat and leave to soak in the cooling water for about 8 hours (keep the lid on the pot)
  4. Return to heat and simmer for 11/2 to 2 hours (until samp and beans soften and water thickens into a sauce)
  5. Top up with water when necessary while cooking so that water level always covers samp and beans
  6. Add salt and stir it in after at least 1 hour of simmering
  7. Stir in margerine/oil when cooked and immediately before serving
  8. Diced garlic and/or Onion rings can be added towards the end of the cooking process
