Jamaican Food and Alcoholic Beverages - The Favorites!

by Renee Morris
(St. Catherine)

Jamaican foods are like no other, the taste is delectable and will leave you longing for more.

Some of the favorite Jamaican foods include Jerk Chicken/Pork, Ackee and Saltfish - the Jamaican national dish, Blue Drawz, Potato Pudding, Rice and Peas and Chicken/ Fish, Jamaican Run Dung with Salt mackerel and Cassava Dumpling.

We also prepare many juices that are not just tasty, but are great for your health such as Carrot juice with Beatroot, Sorrel juice, Sour Sop juice, Guava juice, Callaloo juice and Pumpkin juice.

And the pastry? We have coconut-drops, Gizzarda and Coconut Cake that I'm sure you can't resist, no matter how hard you try. Notice I never bothered to mention the world famous Jamaican patty?

Jamaicans also has a great love for porridge like Bulgar Porridge, Cornmeal Porridge, Rice Porridge, Plantain Porridge, Oates porridge and Hominy Porridge. We typically have them at breakfast, but any can be had at anytime, breakfast, lunch or even dinner- if you like.

There's one thing that the average Jamaican are sure to have on their weekend chill out, a get-together, or partying - its their alcohol.

Some of the latest alcoholic hits are Ray and Nephew Jamaican White Rum, Appleton Special, Street Vybes Rum and Red Label Wine.

Jamaican Food - Yummy!
by: Helen the Germaican

Jerk seasoning, allspice and cumin are some of the spices which I always use! Since I've cooked the first Jamaican recipes, I am a lover of Jamaican cuisine. I don't know if it's exactly the same taste because I sometimes must replace ingredients, but what I eat is wonderful!
Cerassie tea and sorrel drink are meanwhile also well known in my family.
God bless my Jamaicans!
