Ripe Plantain

Of all the flavours in the Caribbean and other tropical places the plantain is the one food that is universally adored.

Around the world plantains are boiled, roasted or most commonly fried. Find a way to add one to the BBQ and you will not be disappointed. Fried sweet plantains are eaten on the side with dishes like stew peas and rice or ackee and saltfish.

The trick to making delicious fried plantain is to know which ones to choose. It’s all about how the skin looks; choose from firmer green plantain, to one with a sturdy yellowish tone, or go for one that looks more beaten up for a sweeter taste.

Plantain can be added to your diet as a replacement for the common potato. Not only are they far more delicious they are nutritionally more superior. They contain a richer source of fibre as well as vitamin A, C and B6, magnesium and potassium.

Thyme - 50g

Thyme has many uses but is best known for being a corner stone in tropical cooking. No Caribbean household's shopping list would be complete without this item.

Fresh thyme (storks and all) is used as an ingredient to enhance the flavour of your favourite meat, fish, vegetarian or vegan dish. When teamed with hot peppers (scotch bonnet), spring onion, ginger and a good quality garlic you have the base for great Caribbean cooking.

Just add authentic seasonings such as Portland Spices and Jamaica Valley high quality pre mixed seasonings. Both are monosodium glutamate (MSG) FREE, and make food taste tropical and delicious. I will be surprised if you need to add anything else to your pot. But if you do here is some motherly advice. Add a little sprinkling of black pepper and a whole heap of LOVE.

In addition to its versatile use in cooking, thyme is said to have added benefits. If coping with chest and breathing issues use fresh thyme made into a tea using hot not boiling water.

Thyme records a high level of vitamin C and is a natural anti oxidant.

Another interesting fact about thyme, dates back thousands of years. Ancient Egyptians used thyme to embalm and preserve Pharaohs!

Gungo Peas Tins 400g

I am not sure when it happened but nowadays it is rare to be served rice and peas cooked with gungo peas or pigeon peas as a they are also known. They are seasonal and come fresh in December. During the rest of the year they are available canned (like these) or frozen. They are sometimes available dried but they are so hard to come by. Most give up and turn to a different type of peas.

If like me, you only occasionally eat rice and pea the odd canned ingredient is fine. I prefer to go this route as the popular bean that tends to always get served with rice has an unusual effect on my digestive system. They cause me to bloat and often cause a pain. I used to blame it on the rice and so switched to brown rice. Nothing changed. Then I remembered when my grandmother used to eat rice and peas cooked with kidney beans she routinely left the red beans or peas on the side of her plate. When I asked her about this she told me that they needed to be soaked over night to remove the toxin called lectin. If you forgot to do this you could get around the problem by cooking them for longer or using a pressure cooker. She told me that both alternative methods were unsafe. I always check that they have been prepared properly or travel with a tin of gungo peas instead. After all they are more authentic and traditional in Jamaican cuisine.

Spring Onion

You might hear the spring onion referred to as scallion or green onion. The name varies but it is essentially the same thing and including in world cooking.

You can uses the whole onion, not just the white bulb at the end but also the green stalks.

They can be eaten hot or cold in salads. Carefully wash the spring onion before use. Often in haste to get these products from the field to the hands of the customer they skip on some of the washing process. So it is not unusual to find that they contain some soil and the odd bug or 2. This speed is needed as spring onions perish rapidly.

Keep buying them as they are packed with essential nutrients needed to support the immune system - vitamin A, C, B2 as well as the lesser known vitamins such as copper, phosphorus, magnesium. Spring onions or scallion if that is what you know them as, provide potassium. It is important to get your potassium intake from a range of fresh produce and not just from bananas.

To keep them for longer, wash and cut them up and freeze them and used them in cooking straight from the freezer.
To preserve them in the fridge, one trick is to wash and cut them up and store them in a glass jar. No need to buy on, just re-use an old jar rather than recycling it. Re-using items is a good habit to adopt.
