Red palm oil is usually thought of as having originated in Africa but, in fact, it was revered and used in ancient Egypt as far back as 5,000 years ago. Beloved by Pharaohs as a sacred food, they prized the oil so highly that it was common to entomb Pharaohs with a bottle of palm oil – so they could have some in the afterlife.

Egyptian Rabbit Molokhia is as authentic an Egyptian recipe as you can find. It is traditionally served with plain white rice. Egyptian Molokhia is named after the primary vegetable ingredient of the same name. Molokhia is “Egyptian spinach” and it has a consistency that is a bit slimy, much like okra. The flavor of it varies greatly according to the method of cooking and the stock that used to prepare it. If you can’t find molokhia fresh where you live, don’t worry – the dish can be made just as effectively and as tasty using fresh, frozen, dried or preserved leaves. This recipe calls for rabbit meat – which traditionally was considered the privileged meat of the Pharaohs, and only the wealthy could afford it. You can also make wonderful Molokhia with beef, duck, or even chicken meat. However, if you want the true, traditional version, then go with this recipe for authentic Egyptian Rabbit Molokhia.

Pemmican can be made with “normal” meat, like beef you would find easily at any grocery store. We suggest, though, that you use wild game meat. It is much leaner, and more in accord with the original ethnic food created and consumed by Native North Americans for millennia.
