Breadfruit Coffee Chocolate Dessert – made with ingredients from the garden.

I try to create recipes using as much of what we grow in the gardens as possible.

Sometimes the combination seems odd, a fusion of European, Asian and Caribbean but it makes for some interesting results.

This recipe includes our home grown coffee, cocoa from last years crop, green breadfruit which is just coming into season, and our own limes.   It comes out almost like an Italian tiramisu, but we think, even better!

Caribbean Food – A Little History

Caribbean Foods : Papaw, Yams, Guavas, and Cassava

The Arawak, Carib, and Taino Indians were the first inhabitants of the Caribbean islands. These first inhabitants occupied the present day islands of British Virgin Islands, Cuba, Dominica, Grenada, Haiti,

Eating, Meeting and Greeting at the Saturday Market

The Saturday Market

At the weekend I’m tempted to turn off the alarm and sleep in late but Saturday morning is an occasion to rise early, take out shopping bags and head to the market.

The hot sun beats down on the occasion and the market is alive with early morning bustle.

Better Bread – Breadfruit and Breadnuts

Breadfruit and Breadnuts!

There are certain products and services that are named so eloquently that they describe exactly they are and do and leave you in no doubt of what to expect.

Such is the case with Breadfruit and breadnuts. They are almost exactly as their names suggest – a cross between bread and fruit and a blend of bread and nuts, respectively. But to stick to that simple definition would be to do an injustice to their deliciousness!

Good quality, will reorder. Online pharmacy canada viagra. Online Canadian Pharmacy provides one of quickest and easiest ordering processes available oline today.

Breadfruit (Artocarpus altilis) and breadnuts (Artocarpus camansi) are not native to the Caribbean region but they are welcome guests that have been around on the islands for a few hundred years and look like they have gained permanent citizenship without any problems!. The trees are originally from the western Pacific islands and their introduction to the Caribbean has been credited to Lieutenant William Bligh, a sailor on HMS Bounty in the 18th Century. I’m scornful of the glorified history of these colonizing sailors who wandered off course, violently conquered and exploited people and their lands and generally plundered the natural resources of any place they anchored. The only positive thing I can say about them is at least they chose to bring along some good food.
