    New to Trinidad

    My DH has just accepted an assignment to Trinidad and we've moved here and staying in Port-a-Spain. We love the country and so exciting to try and find local ingrediants that we can learn to use, but at the same time finding familiar things to make our place have the feel of home.

    Some of the fruits are so differant looking from anything I've ever seen that I'm having trouble deciding what they are. I've also been looking for lemons (found plenty of limes) and oranges with now luck. I did see what they called oranges but they are green (is this the same thing?) Also haven't been able to find something as simple as powdered sugar - wondering if there's another name for it??

    At any rate, would love to hear and maybe get some advise from anyone on this thread that has information to share with me. I'm also looking forward to trying some of the curry recipes I've seen on here - does anyone recommend a favorite?

    Wow, guess I'm getting wordy, but was thrilled to find this thread. icon_biggrin.gif

    WOW! Lucky You!!!!!!

    For powdered sugar if I run out and need some I just pulse granulated white sugar in my food processor or blender until powdered.

    Some of these Photos might help, just hold your cursor over a pic and it will tell you what it is.

    This might help too!

    Sage has a thread on Curry that might help too!

    Thanks, I was wondering if I could make my own powdered sugar - I'll give that a try.

    I'm off to check out the links and I've found the curry thread and have been saving some recipes.

    Hugs Bonnie

    Bonnie, there are a number of members from Trinidad here. They're listed in this thread: http://www.food.com/bb/viewtopic.zsp?t=327458

    You could zmail them, if you wish. It would be so nice to have immediate friends upon moving, wouldn't it?

    Add your name to the list, if you wish. icon_smile.gif
