10 interesting facts about Algeria
@Tapsamai I don't doubt that it must be really good :) , there are liquors made out of this fruit and believe it or not inside the palm tree that makes this fruit there's a liquor called "legmi" so people who climb the tree to get the fruit often pierce a hole in the top of the tree and drink the liquor straight from there, so often they get drunk and fall down it's a funny scene to watch :D.
@ouahoo ooooh, it is so nice of you !! I would wait in Korea, until I got the fruit from you then. You mix cloves and cinnamon? hehe how about cloves, cinnamon, dates fruit, and some of the hot red wines ! It would be heaven, isn't it ? :)
@Tapsamai , in here it's a custom to offer this fruit to people who don't live in Algeria, so if I make it to Seoul even if you're not there I would give it to somebody you know who will give it to you, it has a really good taste. In Algeria we mix it into a paste to which we add cloves and cinnamon and make stuffed biscuits with that it's heavenly good
@ouahoo aaah then now I know which fruit is that ! I think I did see it many time in the Turkish area when I was in german as well. They eat a lot of that. I think it is really good though. hehe you come to Korea next year? That is great ! If I am still here, we still could definitely go for a coffee hehe and then you could offer me as a guest that fruit !
@nollakolla hi, Tassili is an archeological site, there are prehistorical drawings everywhere it may be the first visited place in Algeria, I know people who visited they came back with the greatest impressions
