Product Information

African Dried Iru

Dried iru, also known as "ogiri" or "locust beans," is a traditional condiment used in West African cuisine, particularly in Nigeria and Ghana. It is made from fermented African locust beans (Parkia biglobosa), which are sun-dried and then fermented. The process of making dried iru involves boiling the locust beans, fermenting them, and then sun-drying them. The resulting product is a solid block or cake with a pungent smell and a strong, distinctive flavor.
