Extractions: Staple foods include sorghum, millet, rice, maize, peanuts, potatoes, beans, yams and okra. Meat is a luxury in the villages, but eggs and fish - from the local rivers and reservoirs - are an important source of protein. Salad vegetables and strawberries grown in market gardens are commonly available in the towns. Sauces are a mainstay of the Burkinabè diet - for example 'riz gras' is rice mixed with vegetable sauce, meat, and oil and 'sauce gombo' is a sticky okra-based stew. Sauces are usually served with tô (a stiff white porridge made of millet, sorghum or maize flour) or rice, and eaten with the right hand. In Bissa tô is known as wu, and in Mooré it is called sagabo. Specialities include brochettes (meat cooked on a skewer) and chicken dishes. In rural areas bush rat is considered a delicacy. African 'stock-cubes' are made from néré seeds which are fermented and rolled into a ball Néré seeds are used to flavour the sauces that accompany every meal of tô or rice. Néré trees are never cleared from farming land because their black seeds are a vital part of every meal. The seeds are fermented and shaped into balls, called soumbala or Maggi Africain (African stock-cubes). When a landowner leases a plot of land to another farmer, the rights of the tree crops go to the tenant. But if there are néré trees on the land the owner will always keep the rights to the crop.
