Hi everyone,

Caribbean green seasoning, there as many version as islands this my version me make. Me use this in many thing me make. Me add to stew but most time me use as marinade base for meat and fish. Now me no certain if members be able to get Shadow beni, you can substitute either Culantro or coriander it no quite same but it work. Me know number of pepper seem scary so put as many as you happy with. Also you can use any fresh herb that available at time off year.
You can make in blender because me like it smooth man but you can use processor. This make enough for good size pot, it keep good in fridge for four week.
60 gram flat parsley.
2 whole heads Garlic, Peel and smash.
3 stem celery.
60 gram basil.
1 bunch green onion.
large white onion.
Small red onion or shallot.
2 Piemento pepper red and yellow.
4 Scotch bonnets and 2 Chocolate Ghost.
1 tablespoon white vinegar.
Juice 1 lemon or lime.
Good bunch fresh thyme.
Sunflower oil.

Chop everything rough no vex yourself chopping small then put all green ingredients in blender with tablespoon oil. Blend until little chunky. Chop the peppers, please man use glove AND wash hands straight away Ghosts dangerous thing man. Chop up the onion and put all in blender with peppers. Blend until you get smoothness add a little oil at a time but no enough so mix runny.
Pull leaf off thyme and add it no use stalks they make bitter. Then squeeze in lemon juice.

As me say this very hot man, so use as many peppers as you happy with. Me always add 1 tablespoon this to my marinades when me spice up my meats or fish.

Jah bless!

Do you use a lot of plantain and callaloo in your cooking? Are the Chocolate ghost peppers fresh of dried.
