Bermudas' national drink!
Everyone has at least one which usually leads to another! :-)
Traditionally these are frothed with a Bermuda swizzle stick.
Literally, a stick that ends in three prongs, often cut from an allspice bush.

I used to waitress in a restaurant back home where I had my first taste of fish chowder that I actually liked.(I'm picky!)
Chef Waz was so glad I liked it that he produced the recipe for me the very day I asked for it!!
A must for Easter and Good Friday back home in Bermuda! Just add a fish cake and some mayo and ketchup!! Mmmmm!
I got this recipe from a bakery in Bermuda. Don't be afraid to add more spices if that's your taste!!
(Since the 1st tester, I've tried, tested and fixed the recipe errors and apologise for the mistake.)
This is an old Bermudian favorite with school kids. A charity bake sale is not complete in Bermuda without glass candy! I'd walk away from the sale empty handed and disappointed if there wasn't any!
You'd see me happily walking along the sidewalk with a piece of yummy glass candy wrapped in either a sandwich bag or waxed paper sticking out of my mouth, if they sold it! :-)
More candy than cake really!
When I was young, and way before that, this was seen pretty frequently around Bermuda in small shops. Nowadays, you may see it at a charity bake sale or the occasional corner shop run by Bermudians that still keep in touch with the good ol' days!
I'm pretty sure every Bermudian household that makes this, makes it different. This is how I make it. It's great for when I don't feel like much bother or if our cupboards are looking a bit low on food. :-)
Most Bermudians love some mussel pie at the yearly Cup Match cricket game. The local custom is to have the lid of the hot pie sliced open and a dollop of mayonnaise inserted.

Once upon a time, milk and harbour conch were abundant in Hamilton Harbour. That was before regular cruise ship arrivals. Today, conch are among the many protected species in Bermuda.
