Thanks David. I do grow Aibika. It 's always looking a bit sad here in winter but comes good again in the warm wet weather. I use it quite a lot in soups and stews.
Bele is very good for constipation and also for pregnant women as it is high in iron. The Fijian people say that the sliminess of it also helps lubricate the birth canal for actual child birth if the mother ate plenty during her pregnancy.
I'll bear all of this in mind next time I'm constipated or pregnant ;)
One may be possible, the other a minor miracle ;-)
