Bearman a question...I have ..
Caribbean Cookery Secrets: How to Cook 100 of the Most Popular West Indian, Cajun and Creole Dishes and I know you have sent for it too.

I have just made the jerk marinade, and the "Dipping" sauce from 1/3 of the marinade, I also seived the marinade as instructed. My question is ..is it traditional to seive and have a dipping sauce? I have made jerk many times but not like this. I have to say it tastes delicious but pokey! I do like "Hot" so suits me but the flavour goes further than that...the smell is amazing in the kitchen and I haven't even cooked the chicken yet! That will sit overnight ready for tomorrow.

Your thoughts please!

"Pokey"? Where I come from that means "slow" or "boring."

Hi Pixie
No I have never seen a jerk dipping sauce, either in recipes or when in the west indies. The only recipes I gave cooked before all were either rubs or marinades.

Charlie, don't get rid of any books. You might regret getting rid of them one day. I will always find room for more

Hope to comission a new bookshelf next week, by the same guy who made my kitchen shelf. If it's as good as that one, we're in clover. The man told me I have "too many books"! He should meet our Pixie! LOL
DH will take the old bookshelf into his room, and give me the small shelf from there to put in my office. I hope in the general reshuffle some freed-up space appears. But I doubt it!

Bearman..Has your copy of..Caribbean Cookery Secrets: How to Cook 100 of the Most Popular West Indian, Cajun and Creole Dishes Arrived yet? i had the Jerk chicken tonight and without doubt the best I've ever had..the dipping sauce is devine, think sausages!

Still cooking my way through Ten-Minute Bento
Tonight I have Marinated Salmon (using home-salted salmon) and Fried Cucumber Pickles!
Well, they aren't really. You heat the oil and lightly saute the cucumber and a mild chili and then add the liquids.

Both good!

Pokey means a small place, where I come from. Ie the flat was very pokey, or it had a pokey kitchen.

Mean while..some of the recipes call for...

Baron Green Seasoning 370 ml what does it taste like Bearman?

Bearman says:
Sorry Pixie - but I don't know that one!

pixie says:
I've put some chicken wings in the oven for lunch...I massaged 2 tbsp of the green seasoning in them, the smell is lovely ( much better than when I sniffed the bottle before adding) I will then brush with the bbq sauce and pop them back into hot oven for 5mins...let you know!

Bearman says:
I will certainly like to know what its like - I was thinking that the price was not too bad until I factored in the deliver charge! Is it worth it?

Baron Green Seasoning 370 ml (Pack of 6) I ordered this...In hindsight I am so glad I did...It really adds to the flavour of the chicken...or whatever. You can't put your finger on it but it's there ...then you add the final flavour of your choice..this was p&p free

It would be good on fish me thinks!
