Nigerian Beans and Corn Porridge
We tried making adalu tonight, which is Nigerian porridge of honey beans and corn.  It hit some snags.  We didn't have as much corn as needed, so we made up the difference with mixed vegetables.  That worked fine.  The beans took about twice as long to make as the recipe said.  >_<  But in the end, the result was quite tasty.  There is no sugar added in the recipe, but the honey beans really do have a definite sweet note, kind of smokey.  These would make epic barbecue baked beans.  :D  The next time we make this recipe, we will try it in a pressure cooker or a slow cooker. 

By the time we're done tinkering, it will probably be a different recipe.  The only spice was pepper, plus the dried shrimp and the Maggie cube.  I may try adding an African spice blend instead.

The beans and corn dish sound good.
I wonder what they mean by red oil?
Are they talking about oil that's been dyed red with Annato Seeds perhaps?
If so, Walmart carries packages of Annato Seeds for a few dollars...and you'd also have them handy for Spanish style dishes.

I was intrigued by the lady's description of how to bake a cake on top of the stove when you don't have a working oven--I thought it was a mighty smart way to work around the problem!
