La Case à Manioc Ragald – Production Artisanale de Farine de Manioc, Dégustation et gentillesse

La « Case à Manioc »

Tenue par la Famille Ragald, au Lorrain (Martinique)

On vous y fera découvrir le processus de transformation du manioc à la farine et de la farine aux kassavs (de grosses galettes) et en boulettes pour préparer le féroce d’avocat (repas à base de farine de manioc et d’avocat).

Production Artisanale.

En visitant la Case à Manioc, il y a environ 2 mois, j’ai eu l’occasion de découvrir cette production très intéréssante, surtout du moment que la Famille Ragald pratique encore un procéssus très artisanal! Ce qui de nos jours devient de plus en plus rare, malheureusement.

Et de plus, j’ai pu faire une série de Photos pour documenter cette belle visite! J’en utiliserai quelques unes ici pour illustrer le processus utilisé par la Famille Ragald pour produire la Farine de Manioc

La gallerie de Photos ci-dessous expliquera mieux que tout ce processus du début jusqu’à la fin! 🙂

Manioc Feuillage

Le Tubercule – Racine

Epluchage de la Racine, faite à la main à la Case à Manioc Ragald (au Lorrain – Martinique)

Lavage & Rinçage des Tubercules

Le Tubercule est passé dans une Rape et il en sort ansi que dans l’image de droite

Une fois rapé, le manioc passe dans la presse pour en extraire et éliminer le plus possible l’eau.

Après le pressage, il est versé dans des récipient où il sera soigneusement tamisé à la main (video ci-dessous)

La Farine est ensuite tamisée, toujours à la main, mais à l’aide d’un tamis, pour rendre la texture plus fine

Après avoir été tamisé , elle est versée dans ce récipent chauffé au feu de bois, où elle séche tout en la faisant sans cesse tourner avec ces bras mécaniques, qui empèchent la farine de bruler. Elle sera ensuite tamisée une seconde fois pour obtenir enfin le resultat ci-dessous

Farine de Manioc. Après avoir été tamisée une seconde fois, voici la Farine prète à l’utilisation

Voici la Farine, le produit fini et confectionné

La préparation des Kassav (Cassaves) avec la Farine de Manioc ainsi obtenue

Et enfin….. dégustation!!!! Un vrai régal ces Kassav!! on peut les avoir avec de la chiquetaille de morue, ou bien à la confiture de Goyave, etc, etc, etc…!!! 

Cet excellent Produit est parfait pour ceux qui sont intollérants au Gluten! C’est du GLUTEN FREE!!

BON APPETIT!!

1. Better Than Cheerios

Dragon fruit has an extremely low amount of cholesterol, which ultimately helps the body break down this fruit quickly, keeping you happy and healthy. It’s the perfect fruit to maintain your weight and satisfy your sweet tooth.

2. Heart Healthy

Americans have increasing problems maintaining cardiovascular health. Fortunately, this fruit has an amazing superpower that helps decrease bad cholesterol levels and replenish good levels. Dragon fruit is an excellent source of monounsaturated fats, helping the heart stay in great condition.

3. Fill Up On Fiber

To clean up your digestive system, eat a dragon fruit. They have a high fiber content, which can assist with poor digestion and constipation. Eating the flesh and seeds, which contain good protein, will keep your body fortified and satisfied.

4. Active Antioxidants

To rid the body of free radicals and cancer-producing properties, you caneat foods that contain antioxidants. Believe it or not, dragon fruit is giving acai berries a run for their money.

5. Fights Diabetes

The high amount of fiber in dragon fruit can ultimately help regulate diabetes, as it can stabilize blood sugar levels by suppressing sugar spikes. However, with any dietary changes or modifications, always consult your doctor to make sure this is a good food for you.

6. Reduces Signs of Aging

Eating a dragon fruit with its rich antioxidants can keep the skin tight and young. You can even make a face mask using the fruit combined with honey as a natural alternative to anti-aging masks.

7. Treating Colored Hair

Dragon fruit juice is an excellent agent for treating colored hair. By simply putting the juice or a conditioner containing dragon fruit on your scalp, you can protect your chemically treated or colored hair. This will keep the hair follicles open, allowing your hair to breathe and remain healthy and smooth.

8. Suppresses Arthritis

Arthritis directly affects the joints and causes severe irritation and immobility. Adding dragon fruit to your diet can help you fight these ailments. Dragon fruit’s benefits for people suffering from arthritis are so great that it’s commonly referred to as the “anti-inflammatory fruit.”

9. Avoiding Acne

This treatment is not just for teenagers. Rich in vitamin C, this fruit becomes a great topical ointment. Turn a slice of dragon fruit into a paste and apply it to your reddened areas on your face or skin, then rinse with water. For best results, use twice daily.

10. Soothe Sunburned Skin

By combining dragon fruit with cucumber juice and honey, you can create a compound much like aloe that can soothe burned skin. Abundant in vitamin B3, dragon fruit can moisturize sunburned skin and release heat from the affected area.

How Can You Make Dragon Fruit a Part of Your Daily Routine?

Tired of the everyday apple or banana? Go ahead, you get permission to pick up the exotic fruit because it’s so good it should be forbidden. Dragon fruit is so easy to eat that all you need is a spoon to dig out its goodness, similar to a kiwi. Or, you can easily bite it right off of the peel for a quick fix. One dragon fruit will suffice as a snack, but soon you’ll be craving more. Try some of these recipes that call for dragon fruit here.

Just remember, even though they look beautiful on your counter, they are much more than a simple decoration. Reap the benefits of dragon fruit!

Look at the “Purple version” of this amazing fruit!
