Nigerian Cooking Tips and Tasks reserves this section solely for the description of certain tasks that are crucial to preparing Nigerian food recipes. Many cooks can easily prepare some recipes but are discouraged because they are not familiar with a certain stage in the cooking process.

For instance, some people have complained that because they only have access to dry bitter leaves, their bitterleaf soup does not taste good. Whatever they do, the bitterleaf is still dry to the bite and makes the soup inedible. The article: How to convert dry bitterleaf to fresh details the procedure you need to follow to make your dry bitter leaves as good as fresh.
