Contest Entry #015 - Jamaican Ackee - One of my favourite Jamaican food

On my 1st visit to Jamaica in 2007 I had seen Ackee trees full of the beautiful multicolored fruit.

The bright red, black and yellow bursts of color delighted the eyes and made me ultra curious to see how it would taste.

I have since eaten several versions of the national dish: Ackee and Saltfish -each and every time it aroused an UMMMMMMMMMM GOOOOOOOOD!!!!!!!! from deep within me.

But it was only on a recent trip last year that I saw how it was prepared.

This is how it looks as the tender pastel yellow edible parts are separated, and alongside you see the black seeds that, though inedible and not used in cooking, add to the visual beauty of this national treasure.
