How to Cook Samp


Traditional South African food called “Samp” is made of finely mashed maize kernels. One of the most well-liked uses for it is samp and beans, which makes for a warm, filling meal. Alternatively, you can prepare samp with crunchy peanut butter and have it for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

How to Cook Samp

Step to Cook Samp

The samp and beans should soak in water for eight hours. Put 1 cup (170 grams) of dried sugar beans and 1 cup (170 grams) of samp in a big pot. The samp and beans should be covered with water and left to soak at room temperature overnight .

Samp is typically available online or at international markets. Use crushed white hominy as a substitute if you can’t find it.

The amount of time needed to cook the dried beans and samp is decreased by overnight soaking.

The beans and samp should be dry. Fill your sink with a colander, then add the water, beans, and samp. Drain the water from the colander’s bottom.

Put the beans and samp in a pot, then add water to cover them. Add the rinsed beans and samp to a large stockpot. Fill the pot with fresh water to completely cover the samp and beans.

Over high heat, bring the mixture to a boil. Turn the burner to high heat and place the stockpot on the stovetop. Allow the mixture to heat up until it boils vigorously.

For 60 to 90 minutes, simmer the samp and bean combination. Reduce the heat to medium-low once the mixture boils. For at least one hour, cook the samp, beans, and water together. Once the beans and samp have softened and the water has been totally absorbed, the dish is finished.

Once the hour has passed, check on the stockpot to make sure the samp and beans are soft but not mushy. The mixture shouldn’t require more than 90 minutes of cooking time.
