About African Forest:
African Forest is a holistic agro-forestry social enterprise, founded in 2006, and based on the edge of Soysambu Conservancy, a 22,000 ha ranch surrounding Lake Elementeita, in the Rift Valley. African Forest has a 60 ha plot on the edge of the ranch, where they have an indigenous organic tree nursery and seed centre and trial plantations of Planet Positive Forestry. They also produce and promote, in conjunction with the local communities, sustainable NTFP’s (non-timber forest products) including herbal medicines. Services include plantation establishment and management, reforestation and sustainable development planning and implementation, as well as assistance in raising green finance.
Wildly Good Eco Charcoal
This eco-friendly hardwood charcoal is fired in specially made kilns to give a hotter burning coal. Sustainably harvested on a managed conservancy near Nakuru, a portion of the proceeds from the sale of this charcoal go back to the local community to promote reforestation projects.
The perfect fuel to roast, toast, grill or bake in your Cookswell Oven!
About African Forest:
Cut into an easy to use format, these sticks are made from seasonal prunings from fruit trees at Mlango Organic Farm, or our very own African Olive from the Cookswell Forest. 4 to 5 pieces will smoke for about an hour, and there is no need to soak prior to using.
How to use:
Place a small handful of Cookswell Smoking Wood in the removeable tray that catches the ashes below the liner. When hot coals fall through the holes, they will slowly smolder the wood to produce high-quality smoke for meats, veggies and more! Alternatively and for more smoke production, place a few sticks directly onto the coals in the oven, and cover with a bit of ash.
Remember to keep your oven clean, as the smoke buildup from each use will impart a smoky flavor to the other dishes that you prepare.
Each bag is approximately 500gms in weight
