“BrunchN ‘JERK CHICKEN’? Jamaica Me Crazy!”

22 May

Jerk is a style of cooking native to Jamaica in which meat is dry-rubbed or wet marinated with a very hot spice mixture called Jamaican jerk spice. Jerk seasoning is traditionally applied to pork and chicken. Wikipedia



Ackee and saltfish, served with coleslaw

Ackee and saltfish is a traditional Jamaican dish. The ackee fruit was imported to The Caribbean from Ghana before 1725, as Ackee or Aki is another name for the Akan tribe, Akyem. It is also known as Blighia sapida. Wikipedia

Are you bored with spinach, or kale or looking for a new way to prepare it? Here is a vibrant and fresh way of making kale, spinach and definitely using this Amazing  vegetable- Callaloo.
If you have never heard of Callaloo, I would say it is what some West Africans Countries  call greens. That’s the only way, I ever heard anyone call these leafy vegetables until, I moved to the United States. And there it is disguised as Callaloo.  Also widely known in the Islands as  Callaloo in the Islands.

    Love Jerk Chicken. Holy Trinity Anglican Church, one of the parishes I serve here in Winnipeg has a large Caribbean presence among it’s people, and I’ve often enjoyed homemade Jerk Chicken, along with home made hot sauce.
