News from the Caribbean
Curried beef was a staple when I was growing up, therefore consider it one of my favourite 'comfort' foods. More often than not, my Mother used goat meat. If you get the chance, I highly recommend giving it a try. The curried meat was usually served with Rice 'n Peas (Recipe #373354 is a good version) or plain white rice. You could also substitute the beef with pork tenderloin. The amount of curry given is just a guideline. Each brand and type of curry has it's own unique qualities and intensity. If you do not have access to scotch bonnet peppers, habeneros or jalapenos will do. Freezes well for later use. -- posted by Diana #2

Caribbean Foods Glossary
A handful of islands grow ackee as an ornamental tree, but only Jamaica looks at it as a tree that bears edible fruit. The ackee fruit is bright red. When ripe it bursts open to reveal three large black seeds and bright yellow flesh that is popular as a breakfast food throughout Jamaica. Ackee's scientific name, blighia sapida, comes from Captain Bligh, who introduced the plant to Jamaica from West Africa. Ackee is poisonous if eaten before it is fully mature and because of its toxicity, it is subject to import restrictions and may be hard to obtain in some countries. Never open an ackee pod; it will open itself when it ceases to be deadly. Ackee is sold canned in West Indian markets.
