Late Night Chow

So I’m one of those people that instantly gets hungry or gets cravings just from watching a video. Well I just watched a video on a woman eating a bag of chow. For those of you who aren’t West Indian, chow is the best way (only way for me ) the Caribbean is able to preserve their fruit. Its a combination of sweet, salty and spicy – or hot, depending on how you like it. And tonight, I’m going to teach you how to anchor that odd craving.

Normally I do it with mangos, the sour, the better! But for the sake of availability its going to be pineapple!!

You will need:

  • 1 Pineapple
  • 1 Lime / lemon
  • Hot pepper – minced (I use scotch bonnet)
  • 4-5 cloves of fresh garlic – minced
  • A handful of shadowbenni or cilantro – minced
  • Salt to taste
  1. You want to start by peeling and chopping up your pineapple. Nice bite size chunks are perfect! Feel free to pull out the core, or don’t. Completely up to you
  2. Roll and squeeze 1 lime or lemon into the pineapple
  3. Add and mix in the garlic and cilantro and your desired amount of the pepper.
  4. Mix well, incorporating all flavours and elements
  5. Add salt to taste for your desire.

When your finished you will have something that looks like this
