Seeds from the Sudan

The Uduk gained a reputation as ‘model refugees’ over the years, partly because they often brought their own seeds and tools when they trekked from one place to another, and tended to move in groups based on the old matrilineal family links.  William Danga carried seeds of a special millet, in Arabic called dukhn, on his latest trek to Ethiopia.  This is a fine quality grain used mainly in the northern Sudan.  Having successfully grown some in Bonga, he promises to cook it for me another day, so I can taste how delicious it is.
