It's me again and maybe you're wondering how come I haven't been posting as regular these few days so I've decided to give you all a little glimpse. Well, just a little. Since the set of posts for Divali , I've been a bit tired, not from posting but work related, so I decided to relax a little. So what did I do? Well, I'm not much of a limer, so I stayed at home and checked out the fruit trees around the yard to see what I could get. And I did get a lot of fruits! Lets check them out.
My first stop the Chinee Coconut tree. Got a few with slight jelly and lots of fresh coconut water. This was the start of a nice day don't you think? Leaning on the bunch is our trusty and sharp cutlass (machete) also known as a 3 canal (now you know where the local rapso group got their name from) or 3 line because of the three distinguishing marks.
Afterward it was time to visit the pommecythere tree. This year, like the five finger (carambola), the pommecythere took on a large load of fruits, but there was one problem: this tree is very tall and most of the pommecythere was unreachable at the ends of the branches. Anyhow, we got someone to climb and pick with a long bamboo rod with a bag attached at the end. There was so much I had to give away!
I just couldn't leave the five finger tree alone: just had to pick a bag full. These five finger were really big. Later I'll show you the size of one.
Peewah is in season so there was also a bunch to pick. It made kerekel this time just as delicious though!
And to end the day I sat down with a lovely bowl of plum with salt and pepper. Dribble! Dribble! 😀
So you see what a wonderful day I spent? Lots of relaxation; time to ponder on thoughts and ideas; even some time to watch some cable while enjoying some soft jelly and a nice tall glass of free coconut water. 🙂
Any way before I go I didn't forget to put the lime pepper sauce in the sun. I think I just made it get a little hotter by doing this!
So now you know what I have been doing .....Back to recipes soon. Ah gone!
dribble, dribble....I am dribbling! lol...
i've been working.
waiting for the end and dreaming of being home in Trinidad to check out the parents' yard and bounty.
Those plums look so DELICIOUS!
I particularly like that first shot of the coconut tree.
