Jamaican Roast Corn - Yum, Yum!

Well, by now you have a solid idea of how I love my Jamaican food right?

You should :-)

Anyways, to the meat of the matter, or should I say the corn of the matter (lol).

I was in Sav (Westmoreland) for business, but went downtown ( St. Georges street) to withdraw some funds at the ATM.

Well to my delight, I noticed a gentleman, a vendor, selling one of my favorite Jamaican snacks, roast corn!

You know I had to check him out right?

Of course! And I did!

I bought one and made my way, but so delicious was it, I decided to return and get another one after about 3 kilometers!

This time though, I figured I needed to share 'the moment' with my readers. I made this short video of my interaction with the vendor just for you :-)

It captured (live) one of the ways we prepare roast corn here in Jamaica; this one was with the use of a coal pot fire with a grill!

It brings back so much great memories and I really hope it does the same for you too.

You are familiar with the term 'icing on the cake' right?

Well in the context of the roasted corn, the dried coconut is that 'icing' on the corn - 'it bad' (meaning, delicious)!

You'll notice that the brother gave me a piece of dried coconut at the end to have with it. That truly was the icing on the cake!

Our children have been missing out on a great part of our culture. Most of them have not had a chance to meet the roast corn, roast dumpling and even the roast banana. Not to mention the unique accompaniments like a little piece of coconut or roasted saltfish or run dung.

I love peaches and cream corn

The corn looks delicious as for our local corn we had too much rain in June and caused its growth and therefore must wait for more sun. In the meantime we will eat whatever is available in the market.
