Day Four Hundred and Forty Six - Cassava Processing



The cassava root vegetable contains cyanide and must be processed before it can be eaten. First it is peeled, then ground or grated. Then the mush is put into a woven 'sock' called a matapi. The matapi is hung up and pressure applied by someone sitting on a branch which passes through the bottom loop of the matepi. This squeezes all the water, and the cyanide, out of the cassava. It can then be shaped and fried in an enormous pan to make cassava bread or farine. Made well it's actually very good!

  2. LED taps come in various sizes and styles, most of which should be researched before shopping for one. Most contemporary bathroom and kitchen taps use either a single or double tap on it, depending on the budget and preferences of the homeowner. LED taps are typically seen indoors, such as in the bathroom or kitchen, since they do not rust and are considered eco friendly. http://www.cheaptap.co.uk/led-taps-c-28.html can also be purchased, and are considered a fun way to make a room memorable with lights while making the water's temperature obvious to users.
