How Can I Make Ponmo Extremely Soft? by Fafesot: 1:46pm On May 24
Good day Nairalanders, I have a little problem. I bought some cowskin(ponmo) few days back. They are not so soft, at least to my satisfaction. I've been soaking it in water since I bought it but no significant change has happened. Are there ways I can make them soft? I mean very soft. Are there things I can add to it. Your responses are highly appreciated.

Just fry it in palm oil or cooking oil for like 20 Minutes . so it will be very hard then put it inside your stew after a while you will shocked that the pomo will be soft.

If frequently used in excess


Adding a little will tender it, after you wash and boil it again without potash

There are two types you will find out there. The one from the male cow is usually the soft one cos male cows are usually not reared for long they're easily replaced.
The one from the female cows are tougher because they are used to breed so are kept longer. By the time they're slaughtered it's in their old age that makes the skin tough.

This strong one you bought is the one for making Palm slippers. Next time, tell them to give you the one for eating

Get a (non-electric) pressure cooker. Why doesn't everyone know this?

To be honest , if not because we consume everything consumable, we should not be eating Ponmo at all .
We can create a thriving leather industry in the south if we just find something cheaper to eat.
But, we all understand sha. In all you do, don't use potash , it's bad for your health .
Use a pressure pot or throw the damn thing away sad
