Mfula Mfula, also called "river river" in English, is a Zulu homemade alcoholic beverage made by the process of fermenting bread, oats, sugar, pineapple and other fruits.

 20 l Warm water
 1 Pineapple
 5 Stale Breads
 ½ kg Jungle Oats
 1 kg Brown Sugar
 20 g Instant Yest (2 sachets = 20 g)
1

Chop pineapple finely (including pineapple skin)

2

Crumble you bread.

3

In a bucket mix together all your ingredients together. (chopped pineapple, crumbled bread, jungle oats, sugar, yeast and water. adding other fruit is optional)

4

Close lid on your bucket loosely and leave over night to ferment.

5

In the morning, strain the coarse chunks of pineapple and bread with a large strainer. (We used a plastic sack, the kind you get with a bag of oranges)

6

Strain a second time with a fine sieve. (You may also use a cloth)

7

Serve and enjoy!

What is stale bread? : "Stale bread is Dry pieces of breading that have been exposed to air or heat and have become hardened."
NOTE: You may add a small does more of sugar upon serving in order to sweeten the taste and cut down on the strong, warm alcohol overtones. Your mixture will be ready to consume after a day, but it will continue to ferment after that. The longer it is allowed to ferment, the more carbonated and alcoholic it will become. You can keep it in the fridge for up to a week.
