Moroccan Argan Oil Real Story From a Berber Woman

I am working with my shoulders, legal work and hallal money

You heard me, we collect argan, break it, and we clean it up 

We process and filter it, than we roast it a bit, 

We also blended it in Azreg (a traditional berber blender, see the picture below) 

We sell it to Germans, French, Holland, British, You hear me

We sell to Muslims and other religions, and Middle East and other regions of Europe

Argan oil is a medication

I  am raising my kids and family, and we are all working in Argan

We have our own store, and we are living like everyone else, and we are well

Anyone who wants to work need to use his or her own shoulder

I have four girls and four boys, boys are working, one of my girl is married, and the other 3 are still single, and they are working as well. 

You hear me, I know a little bit of French, and we are living, god is helping us

All my family is working, but I am the only one who’s working the hardest. Because

Azreg is hard to use to process Argan. Yeah, Azreg is hard! (big laugh), work is hard

That’s why people don’t want to work, Azreg is so good, it helps me, I get to sweat

I laugh with foreigners (non Muslims) and I laugh with Muslims because we are the same and we are living with other people.

We don’t get mad, whatever people say to us, we need money, l’argent, monsieur…(big laugh)…travail, l’argent…(big laugh)

I can’t cry, I am laughing, and enjoying my living.

I am always lauging…(big laugh)

A little bit of money, we buy our own needs, and we dance once in awhile

Argan is very expensive, we don’t cheat, we provide real organic argan, we don’t cheat, how about god? Death is waiting us, we can’t cheat our customers by mixing argan, 

No cheating, It is my my head and brain that guides me, and I used it to watch Berber women who knew how to make Argan, they tought me how to make it, after that, I start making my own argan

People are a bit hard and harsh on us, you hear me

I don’t know, what is wrong with them

Everything is available, vegetables, fruits and meat are everywhere

Sometimes I hear stuff that I don’t like, and it makes me sick

When you hear someone saying stuff that you don’t do

Especially when they say, you are mixing argan, and it is not authentic

But I usually leave them to god, that’s what makes me sad..

Re: Couscous: A Moroccan Tradition
Scott, Your blog bought back some nostalgic memories for me. When I go traveling, its all about the food and the memories that are triggered when I try and re-create a dish i stumbled upon on my travels(without much success).

It was just the other night that I was paging through my album, the photos depicting the utter chaos of the market streets and the beautiful colors on display. It was a visual spectacle. The food was a gastronomic spectacle. My personal favorite dish while visiting Morocco was the lamb tagine with dates. The tenderness of the lamb coupled with the sweetness of the dates was a mere delight and surprise to my palate. Thank you for helping me relive my Morocco experience. Morocco is a must-see travel destination and for more information visit www.essentialtravel.co.uk/magazine/country-guides/morocco/travel-to-morocco.asp for some great travel tips and facts about Morocco.
