The food which originated from the northern part of Ghana is traditionally prepared with millet dough with the final product looking very white. While the northern part of Ghana still stick to using millet dough to prepare the dish, the people in the southern part of Ghana have made some slight changes to the traditional way of preparing it, by adding maize and cassava though.

Tuo Zaafi is eaten with a special green vegetable stew or soup mainly containing the popular green bitter leaves as its core ingredient known as “Ayoyo”. Notwithstanding, Tuo Zaafi can equally be eaten with Okra soup and this is especially common in the South where consumers prefer the Okra soup over the green leaves soup.

Tuo Zaafi is now common in most chop bars in cities like Accra, Kumasi and Takoradi. If you are yet to taste this God-sent food, the next time you visit any ‘Chop Bar’ be sure to order for some and have a taste of the food stolen from the North and gifted to the entire nation. Ask your guide for popular Tuo Zaafi joints in town.

The attached Tuo Zaafi recipe is from Modern Ghana.

Process for Tuo Zaafi and Ayoyo Stew: 

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 bunch Ayoyo leaves (Corchorus Olitorius)
  • 1 tsp Dawadawa (African Locust bean)
  • 1 tbs spoon powder Pepper
  • 4 medium Onions
  • Meat (enough)
  • 4 pieces of dried fish
  • 1 smoked salmon
  • 4 medium Fresh tomatoes
  • 1small tin tomatoes
  • salt to taste
  • water 6 tbs palm oil
  • any spices preferred
  • 4 cups of corn flour

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Wash Ayoyo leaves thoroughly and cut into tiny pieces and put water on fire in cooking pot. Add saltpeter when water boils and add cut Ayoyo leaves in the boiled water and stir periodically.
  2. Then beat the leaves with your ladle until it becomes slimy with bubbles. Bubbles will rise but continue to beat it until it settles to prevent loss of your healthy Ayoyo into the fire to create a mess in your kitchen.
  3. When it does not rise again, it means Ayoyo is cooked. Remove from fire and set it aside. Wash all the ingredients, and cut meat into pieces. Steam your meat well with chopped onions.
  4. Add pepper, tomatoes, salt and spices preferred. Stir to get the tomatoes cooked well. Add dawadawa and dried fish. Pour your palm oil into it and reduce the temperature of the fire.
  5. Let it stew for 10minutes and add the salmon. For the next 20- 30 minutes, leave it on the fire and allow it to cook and stir regularly. When ready, you can choose to pour the boiled Ayoyo into the stew and mix it up or serve them separately on top of the Tuo.
  6. For the TUO Zaafi, put water on fire to simmer about three quarters the size of your pot. Take one cup of the corn flour and mix with cold water and stir with your hand until you get a thoroughly mixed smooth and light solution. Add the corn flour solution to the boiling water and stir thoroughly with a wooden spatula to avoid crumps.
  7. Like a form of porridge, leave it to boil for 10minutes. Fetch some of the porridge (about 1/3) aside. Now add rest of the corn flour to the remaining porridge and stir non-stop.
  8. You must be very smart at this point to prevent your Tuo from developing into lumps.
  9. Add the flour bit by bit till hard enough to ‘paddle’. In fact the Tuo must be soft so add the porridge you fetched and put aside little by little and keep ‘paddling’.
  10. Within 20-30 minutes of stirring under constant heat, your Tuo Zaafi should be ready .Serve hot with the Ayoyo stew on top. Enjoy your home made TZ.

Apple launches MacBook Pro with new chips, larger displays, and the notch

Apple revealed new MacBook Pros, and nearly everything about them has changed.

Most importantly, the MacBook Pro laptops come with Apple’s new chips. That’s right, its chips, plural, because Apple launched two new chips: The powerful M1 Pro, and the even more powerful M1 Max.

The M1 Pro has either six or eight high-performance cores and two efficiency cores, giving it 70 percent better performance compared to last year’s M1. It also has a 14-core or 16-core GPU, which Apple claims gives it two times better graphics performance compared to the M1. The M1 Pro supports a maximum 32GB of RAM memory.

Then there’s the M1 Max, which has more memory bandwidth, and 32 GPU cores, giving it 4x better graphics performance than the M1. It supports a maximum of 64GB of RAM memory.

But this time, the MacBook Pro hasn’t only been upgraded on the inside. The devices come in new sizes — 14.2 and 16.2 inches — and have a new keyboard that has physical function keys instead of the Touch Bar.

The display has also been upgraded, and the rumors were true: The new MacBook Pro laptops have an iPhone-like notch on top, which hosts the new 1080p FaceTime camera. This is because the bezels on the displays have shrunk to just 3.5mm, which means that those display sizes were made possible in nearly the same-sized enclosure as on the previous models.

The 16.2-inch model has a resolution of 3,456 x 2,234 pixels, for a total of 7.7 million pixels, while the 14.2-inch model has a resolution of 3,024 x 1,964 pixels for a total of 5.9 million pixels. Both displays have the same mini-LED tech seen in the iPad Pro, and support an adaptive refresh rate up to 120Hz.

As expected, the new MacBooks now have a ton of ports: On one side, you get HDMI, Thunderbolt 4, and an SD card reader. On the other, there’s a headphone jack, two more Thunderbolt ports, and yes, the MagSafe connector has returned.

Speakers and microphones have also been upgraded, and the new MacBooks are far more versatile when it comes to connecting additional displays; with the M1 Pro chip, you can connect two additional XDR displays, and with the M1 Max chip, you can connect up to three XDR displays and an additional 4K TV.

As for battery life, Apple claims the smaller model can handle up to 17 hours of video playback and up to 11 hours of wireless web browsing. The larger model can do up to 21 hours of video playback, and up to 14 hours of wireless web browsing.

The 14-inch MacBook Pro starts at $1,999, though the price goes up to $2,899 when configured with the M1 Max chip and 32GB of RAM. The larger, 16-inch MacBook Pro starts at $2,499 when configured with the M1 Pro chip, and it starts at a whopping $3,499 when configured with the M1 Max chip.

How to AirDrop from iPhone to Mac and Mac to iPhone

Published

, How to AirDrop from iPhone to Mac and Mac to iPhone, Frederick Nuetei

AirDrop lets users wirelessly send files between Apple devices. Because it uses Bluetooth technology, it relies on devices being in close physical proximity to each other. It’s a handy way to quickly share files, photos, etc. without the need to draft an email or message. Plus, AirDrop files are encrypted, so it’s also secure.

Make sure you follow these steps beforehand so that you’re good to go:

  • Turn on Bluetooth and WiFi. You do not need to be connected to a WiFi network but the WiFi setting does need to be on. Also, turn off your hotspot if it’s on. AirDrop won’t work otherwise. 
  • Make sure that the devices are within range of each other — no more than about 30 feet apart.
  • Check the AirDrop sharing settings of the device that is receiving the file. The settings are “Receiving Off,” “Contacts Only,” or “Everyone.” If you choose to only receive files from contacts, make sure that the owner of the device sending the file is saved as a contact. You can adjust these settings in your Control Center or by going to “Settings” > “General” > “AirDrop.”

How to AirDrop from iPhone to Mac

Open the file that you want to AirDrop, then tap the share icon, which is the square with the upwards-facing arrow.

That will show you all of the ways you can share a file. Tap the AirDrop icon, which is the concentric circles with a triangle cut out at the bottom.

, How to AirDrop from iPhone to Mac and Mac to iPhone, Frederick Nuetei

From there, select the user/device that you’d like to send it to. Tapping the user/device automatically starts the AirDrop process. If no devices are showing up, double-check that all of your settings are correct.

To accept an AirDrop on your Mac, a preview window will pop up on your device asking you to accept or decline the transfer. If you accept the AirDrop, it will show up in the same app it was sent from (a photo sent via AirDrop will show up in your photos app.)

How to AirDrop from Mac to iPhone

There are a few different ways you can share a file via AirDrop on a Mac.

1. From Finder

Locate the file you want to share. Instead of opening it, control-click/right-click on the file. In the dropdown, go to “Share” then choose AirDrop from the menu.

2. From the open file

If the file that you want to share is already open, you can AirDrop from the toolbar of the open application. Find “Share” then AirDrop from the pop-out menu. The “Share” button will usually be under “File,” but might be its own section in the Toolbar or in another section, depending on the app.

3. Drag and drop

Last but not least, in the “Finder” window, you can drag and drop the file into AirDrop. Click and hold down on the file and drag it into the AirDrop section located under “Favorites.” Still holding down on the file, drag and drop it over the receiving device.
