Ok! since we picked so much five finger (a whole bag!) we decided to make some chow with a few. Actually, just three because they were very BIG and my mother wanted to save some for another recipe that’s Oh..so..wonderful; more on that later.
An Exotic Fruit To Make a Chow
The carambola fruit or star fruit is called by that name because it makes a perfect five-pointed star when sliced. It is a good source of vitamin c and potassium and thus makes a delicious and nutritious chow. It is also popular in many other cuisines. It also makes a great juice.
As usual we have the ever popular chadon beni in this recipe because a chow is not really a chow if you don’t have chadon beni in it. Ask any Trini. I left the salt and pepper to taste, because we all have our threshold for pepper. Mine might be a little higher ……..or lower ….than some of you 🙂 . So here’s another simple trini recipe for you all to enjoy. Here’s Five finger Chow.
