We were really lucky to have our landlords spend a Saturday, showing us all how to make an "Oil Down". It was a very unique experience that we all really enjoyed. Now in the spirit of keeping the blog "real" and "honest".......none of us really enjoyed the actual eating part. Now don't get me wrong, it was edible but we found that so many of the ingredients were really quite dry, such as the green banana, breadfruit and the cornmeal dumplings. The flavor of the stew was actually quite good but it was a really heavy meal with not enough gravy. Luckily the oil down is so much more than the eating. The eating actually only took up about 1% of the time. We had so much fun, picking the ingredients from around our house, drinking from coconuts, peeling Caliloo, seeing what the inside of a breadfruit looks like and making new friends. Enjoy the video!
