Community Video (Senegal): Séchage et Conservation des Fruits et Légumes

Fanta visits her sister, Awa, who teaches her how to cook. She notices that her neighbor has a variety of preserved fruits and vegetables. Awa explained how she made the preserves when she had an abundance of vegetables. Amazed by what she’s seen, Fanta asks her sister to teach her these drying methods. Awa takes her to the village facilitator who teaches her to dry and conserve fruits and vegetables. Storing produce during the rainy season can help families access nutritious foods during the dry season when fruit and vegetables are typically expensive and hard to find.
