Then, place the samp in a bowl and cover it with water. Allow it to soak overnight or for at least 6-8 hours. This helps to soften the samp and reduce the cooking time.Drain the Water: After soaking, drain the water from the samp using a colander or strainer. Rinse it again under cold water to remove any remaining impurities.Boil the Samp: In a large pot, add fresh water and bring it to a boil. The general guideline is to use about 3 cups of water for every 1 cup of soaked samp. You can adjust the quantities based on your preference and the desired consistency.Add the Samp: Once the water is boiling, add the drained samp to the pot. Reduce the heat to low and let it simmer.Cook the Samp: Allow the samp to cook for about 1 to 1.5 hours, stirring occasionally. The cooking time may vary depending on the desired tenderness. Check the consistency and texture of the samp periodically, and continue cooking until it reaches your preferred level of softness.Seasoning (Optional): If desired, you can add salt or other seasonings, such as herbs or spices, to enhance the flavor of the samp. This step is optional and can be adjusted according to personal taste.Drain Excess Liquid: Once the samp is cooked to your desired consistency, drain any excess liquid using a colander or strainer.Did You Know?Iwisa is known for its commitment to sourcing high-quality maize and employing stringent quality control measures.
