Caribbean Forum-Oxtail Stew
Oxtail Stew, like so many other Caribbean Dishes that share the same name differ from island to island. What you find in Trinidad will vastly differ from what you find in Jamaica.
Chile Rellenos is one of those "how can something so simple be so good" dishes. There are several versions of this classic. The Central and South American Cooking Forum is your go to place this month to find a version perfect for your family & kitchen.
Jam/Jelly of the Month-Huckleberries
What is a Huckleberry besides being Idaho's State fruit?
Huckleberries are small and round-they look alot like blueberries. Huckleberries range in color from bright red, through dark purple, and into the blues. In taste the berries range from tart to sweet, with a flavor similar to that of a blueberry, especially in blue and purple colored berries, and some have noticeably larger seeds.
Huckleberries are almost impossible to domesticate, so if you want them plan on a day trip to pick them in the wild. Mind the bears.
Contrary to popular belief, Allspice is not a blend of cloves, nutmeg and cinnamon, it's the dried unripe berry of the pimento plant. Native to South America and the West Indies, and exclusive to the Western hemisphere, most of the world’s allspice comes from Jamaica. Find out more in the TOTM Forum
