Steamed callaloo

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
6 pounds Callaloo; chopped
2 tablespoons Butter
3 Onions; peeled and sliced
2 tablespoons Dry Jerk Seasoning; (recipe given previously)
1 cup Water
1 can (8-oz.) tomato sauce

For Terri (and anyone else), here are three recipes from JERK: BARBECUE FROM JAMAICA by Helen Willinsky--for things you asked for, Terri.

Wash the callaloo in lots of water, discarding the old outer leaves. Make sure that the stalks are cut into small pieces. The stalks should be easily pierced. If they are too old, they will be pity inside and have a bitter taste.

In a large pot, melt the butter. Add the onions and saute until almost translucent. Add the Dry Jerk Seasoning, water, and tomato sauce. Add the chopped callaloo. Cover and simmer over medium to low heat for 15 to 20 minutes. Adjust the seasonings to taste. (Willinsky says she never uses much salt.) Serve hot. Serves 6.

Willinsky says you can substitute mustard greens or spinach for the callaloo, "but it won't be the same." Posted to KitMailbox Digest by "Joanne L. Schweikj" <SCHWEIKJ@...> on Jan 12, 1998
