I made another batch of "Mother in Law". EatTheRainbow. If you ❤️ 🌶, then you will ❤️ this Trini condiment "Mother in Law". Yes! We 🇹🇹 really like having fun with words, hence the playful name for this condiment. The combination of fresh ingredients turns out to be super flavourful & spicy. 🍋 juice, Caraili (bitter melon) Onion Culantro 🥕 🌶(I used Habanero & Thai Chilli) Garlic Himalayan Pink Salt

Green Fig (Banana) Takari.
I have been wanting to make this dish for quite some time now, but had to patiently wait until I could get Green Figs (Green Bananas) at one of the local stores here in #upperleftusa. As luck would have it, I found Green Figs (Bananas) at the store a few days ago. As with most of the recipes that I make this is one that I watched my beloved Grammy make over & over again. Ingredients -Green Fig ( Bananas), Onions, Garlic, Chandon Beni (Culantro), Scotch Bonnet Pepper, Salt, Oil, Water. Quite often Grammy would vary her recipe with ingredients such as Pimento, Thyme, Curry or bit of Salted Cod (bacalao) that she had fried to a crisp. When I make this recipe I change out the water for stock or coconut milk.
More than likely Grammy would pick a hand or two of green figs from a bunch that was ready to be cut from her garden. She would rub a bit of coconut oil into the palm of her hands before peeling the green bananas so as to avoid getting the sticky sap from the green banana skin stuck to her hands. Green figs would be cut into little bite sized pieces after they were peeled, and quickly stuck in a bath of room temperature tap water so as to stop discoloration/browning of the peeled pieces.
I have vivid memories of this dish being cooked over an open fireside in Grammy’s outdoor kitchen, a heavy bottom pot would be placed over the wood fire, oil would be added to the pot. Once the oil was heated, onions, garlic & hot pepper would be added to the pot and cooked until softened, chadon beni would be added and allowed to cook for about a minute. Next the green fig/ banana pieces would be drained and added to the pot, all the ingredients would be allowed to fry until a bit of browning started at the bottom of the pot, liquid is then added to twice cover the green fig/banana pieces, the contents of the pot is allowed to simmer until the green fig/banana pieces are near fall apart & the gravy has thickened. Season with Salt & Voila!!

🇹🇹Mango Chow! (Recipe)
Spice up your Fruit!
I've been making mango chow since my hands could hold a knife to peel mangoes, and probably eating the spicy delight long before I could say the words. Growing up in the Caribbean there was always an availability of abundant tropical fruits. Mangoes came in a variety of shapes, colors, flavours and textures and I was fortunate enough to grow up never knowing a shortage of this lovely fruit. Mango Chow seemed liked a right of passage for us as littles. Among my siblings, cousins & friends from the neighborhood there was always friendly rivalry as to who could make the "hottest" (spiciest) chow and the more revered title of who could eat the "hottest" chow. I'm fairly sure I've earned both titles at some point in my younger life 😁. Chows weren't restricted to mangoes, we had our pick of abundant tropical fruits to choose from (pineapple, papaya, chenette, green plum, red plum, sour cherry, pommerac, carambola, shaddock pommecythere, cashew, guava etc.), quite often a chow ended up being a medley of fruits. As any Trinbagonian will tell you, we make do when we're not home, luckily the Pacific Northwest (home) has been forgiving to my tropical taste buds, ingredients are fairly readily available.
Trini Mango Chow
2 Mangoes (half ripe, peeled & sliced)
2 cloves Garlic (crushed)
1 Scotch Bonnet (crushed, whatever chillies are available, habanero, Thai chillies)
1 tbsp Culantro ( finely chopped,use Cilantro if Culantro is not available)
Salt to taste ( I use Himalayan Pink Salt)
Black Pepper to taste

Mix all the ingredients together, do a taste check, and adjust salt and b/pepper to taste.
