Pretty cool.
This thread originally ran The winter of 2009. Where it ran it's course 1/13/09.
Then it was revived 12/10/10, almost one year later, by someone who only made one post while here visiting DC...
Then it was revived again 1/11/11... by yet someone else who only made one post while doing her stint here. hmmm... And again, amost one year later...

A little hubub that time. A few comments. Finca, the OP, came back. And then it fell dormant yet again. Only to be resuscitated yet again, this 27th day of February, 2014. Another cold... winter... day...

Coincidence? I think not.

Can't help you on the red beans, but thanks for bringing this back. I only wish I could find the ingredients in some of the recipes. I would love to eat this.

Hadn't spotted the dates Pac. But yes, the recipes look very interesting and tasty. Sadly, I can't make some of them either. (Plaintains are definitely not available in my neck of the woods.)

No plantains in England. I will remember that.

In a pinch you can sub out greenish bananas for plantains, Katy.

I'm not positive about Caribbean, but in New Orleans red beans are kidney beans as in red beans and rice.

The recipe includes this information: "If small red beans aren't available, substitute red kidney beans or black beans."

You'd probably get them in West Indian shops in London Birmingham, Nottingham or Manchester (probably not the only places but those are the ones I've seen.)

Where did you get that idea, PF? We do have coconuts. Saw some the other day in the village greengrocer's shop.

The W. Indian mum of one of the children I taught years ago told me to use red kidney beans. Not sure which island she came from as it's a long time since I knew her.

[I remember very few of "my" mothers but I remember Mrs Henry. Tall and "statuesque", stunning looking with almost blue-black complexion and a commanding presence, to put it mildly. We always tried to take her with us as a helper on field trips. She only had to look at a child who was misbehaving and it shrank! "Well, dear", she said to me one day "I have the advantage over you. I know all their mothers!" I don't know what it's like nowadays but back then in the 1980s it was the matriarch who ruled the roost in West Indian families - there was none of this namby pamby "Wait 'til your father gets home" nonsense!]
