  1. What great recipes! I especially love the jerk chicken and avocado salad... sounds like a luscious combo!

  2. I saw your cassareep recipe on and was wondering if you could help me.

    I currently live in South Sudan and would like to make pepper pot for many reasons, including I don't have refrigeration and the cow meat here needs a lot of care to taste good.

    I once had a Guyanese boyfriend who's mother made me pepper pot and I ate it everyday for a week - it was heaven.

    I've been trying to get my hands on fresh bitter cassava, but having a hard time because most people are afraid I will kill myself with it

    Dried bitter cassava is sold for making alcohol and fresh sweet cassava is abundant.

    Two questions:

    Can I re hydrate the bitter cassava to make cassareep, will it work as well as fresh?

    Can I use the sweet cassava and maintain the preservative properties of the pepper pot soup?

    Thanks for your help!
