In the photo, Zozibini can be seen cooking the tripe in traditional cast iron pot with an outdoor fire. 

She shared pictures of the cooked meal and it looks delicious.

How to cook tripe

Tripe is very easy to cook. However, the trick is that it has to be well-cooked, otherwise it will be hard to chew. 

You also have to ensure that it is thoroughly washed before you cook it.

Let's look at the recipe:

- Place tripe in a pot and cover it with enough water.

- Add onion to help minimise the smell of the tripe and to add flavour. 

- Cook on medium heat for two hours.

- Add salt. Optional - add a small amount of paprika and turmeric for colour.

Simmer for a further 30 minutes or an hour, until the meat is soft.
