Christmas in Jamaica: It’s Sorrel Drinking Time!

Christmas in Jamaica would not be Christmas without traditional Jamaican Sorrel Drink, and you still have plenty of time to make yours! Yes, you can buy it pre-bottled year-round in Jamaican supermarkets and throughout the Caribbean, but there is something special about making your own. Homemade is always better. It's not difficult and is good for you (if you leave out the rum!). Sorrel ("SAH-rell"), is the Jamaican name for the Hibiscus sabdariffa plant, a prickly species of the hibiscus (not the ornamental variety) and cousin to the okra. Sorrel grows abundantly in Jamaica, and you will...

Make Your Own Jamaican Jerk Sauce for Chicken or Fish

  Little David's Jerk Sauce Little David owns a jerk pit (Little David's Jerk Centre) in the village of Boston near Port Antonio, Jamaica, where jerk was born. Here's our rendition of his delicious jerk sauce & we think it's a pretty good copy. Below, we'll give you a recipe for baking jerk chicken in the oven. It's not quite the same as the one cooked over the coals and pimento wood, but we think you'll love it anyway. Give it a try!

Jamaican Ginger Beer Recipe | Make Your Own!

Jamaican Ginger Beer Recipe | Make Your Own!

About Jamaican Ginger Beer I love ginger in every form... fresh, dried, pickled (for my sushi), candied (or crystallized), ground/powdered... whatever. It's ALL good! It's a little sweet but a little spicy & peppery. They say that Jamaica grows the best ginger in the world, because the soil and climate is perfect for the plant. Ginger beer (really a fermented ginger-flavored soda) is very popular in Jamaica. It's similar to ginger ale, but zingy-er! I love it alongside spicy jerk. It's also very good at settling an upset stomach. The Jamaican ginger beer recipe follows this short history...

Jamaican Coffee Industries Limited ® | Café Reggae recipe

One thing I ALWAYS stock up on during my Jamaican adventures is coffee! IMHO, Jamaica produces the world's best coffee. I start every morning with a taste of Jamaica's eastern parishes (Portland (where my heart is), St. Thomas & St. Andrew). But I drink coffee all day long, so the pricier Jamaica Blue Mountain® can get pretty expensive! I buy, and actually prefer, Jamaica Mountain Choice (or High Mountain) which is grown outside the Jamaica Blue Mountain® "zone" (at a slightly lower elevation). It's flavor is smooth, sweet and delicious, you can find it in every supermarket and at the...
