Mungongo Oil and Soup Making Project

 

We are producing Mungongo oil and soup. Mungongo is known as mongongo or manketti, velvety fruits ripen and fall between March and May each year, and contain a thin layer of edible flesh around a thick, hard, pitted shell. Inside this shell is a highly nutritious nut. Mungongo oil from the nuts has been traditionally used as a body rub in the dry season, to clean and moisten the skin. Nowadays, since the Mungongo oil has an preventive effect against hypertension, the oil is known as healthy food.

Richard Borshay Lee, writes

A diet based on mungongo nuts is in fact more reliable than one based on cultivated foods, and it is not surprising, therefore, that when a Bushman was asked why he hadn’t taken to agriculture he replied: “Why should we plant, when there are so many mungongo nuts in the world?”
