A friend, Rodkers @rodkersjourneys, said more farmers better foods.
This morning, Ujang Rusmana, a farmer coched by @odesaindonesia, gets started to harvest the sorghum planted 120 days ago. “Give me 10 stems and let’s try processing it into mollasses,” “okay,” he replied.
It’s recommended red sorghum to have good mollasses, but since Basuki Suhardiman, who introduced the sorghum to Cimenyan, brought the white seeds, which is preferred for processed grains, it’s okay to use the white plants this time then.
Odesa have introduced to marginal farmers and communities in certain places, how to making the grains into several foods, from bread to simple traditional yet delicious dish like ‘papaisan’. So, there is no part of the sorghum is unusable. What a blessed potential plants!
Please Odesa, pak Faiz, pak Basuki, don’t wait too long to spread out the planting more and more to the farmers, especially to the marginal farmers, not to replace any existing plants like the blessed rice, etc, but to enrich different variants so the marginal communities can have more opportunities to have good foods and to explore potential economical products.
