Save money, buy banana fingers
MARKETS have also recorded an increase in the supply of matooke. Prices for a bunch of matooke cost as little as sh4, 000 in most markets around town. You can even buy a bunch from farmers’ trucks at lower prices.

Now that matooke is in plenty, below we bring you tips on how to choose good matooke and how to put it to best use. Though matooke is cheap and in plenty, it does not make sense buying a big bunch if you have a small family.

The bunch will ripen before you consume it all. Instead, it is advisable to buy a small bunch or matooke fingers. A heap of 12 to 14 fingers cost sh1000.

In addition, buying fingers will enable you alternate with other food items to have variety at home. However, if you opt for a big bunch, choose one that is fresh so that it goes for a longer time before ripening.

Do not be carried away by the low prices traders are offering, while you shop remain focused; insist on quality so as to get your money worth.

You can tell fresh matooke by looking at the stems and the finger tips. Choose a bunch with fingers that are not damaged. Damaged fingers ripen faster and that will mean a waste. What happens incase your matooke ripens?

Susan Nassuna, an elderly woman advises that you do not have to throw it away. Instead, have it steamed on top of food. She confirms that steamed ripe matooke is a delicacy for children and can be eaten as a cold or hot snack.
