Today again, I'm showcasing another great and a favourite pommecythere recipe of mine; pommecythere chow. To me saying Pommecythere chow is delicious is an understatement: somehow the slight sour taste of pommecythere complemented by the garlic, chadon beni and hot pepper is nothing short of heavenly. Well maybe Trini heaven 🙂
Pommecythere is also known as ambarella or June plum. It is mostly popular for it is used to make wine, and most popular, a chow. This chow is much like pickling, as the pommecythere is left to soak for as long as the needed. Pommecythere is a citrus, so it is high in vitamin C
Enjoying Pommecythere Chow
So when and how do you really enjoy a good trini pommecythere chow? Well, I would say anytime! 🙂 You could have it as a snack while watching T.V, liming by the beach or river..... You don't need a special occasion to have chow.....As to how to enjoy chow fresh is best. However, what I like to do is refrigerate the chow a bit then enjoy it. There's something about the cold pommecythere and the heat of the pepper mixing in your mouth that's .....well you will just have to try it and see, Uh!... taste.
Don't you like the idea of experimenting with cold and hot? I mean we are used to being served peppery, spicy foods hot and I agree it has it's place, but how about a chilled dish that's spicy. Now that's a thought; cold heat is what I would call it. Do you know of any chilled spicy dishes? A new concept to play around with I would say. Anyhow, here's Pommecythere Chow; simple, hot (don't forget hot) and delicious. Enjoy!
