SORREL POPCORN!

This recipe closes off Sorrel Month at Nana’s Kitchen- which celebrated Jamaica’s most festive ingredient this time of the year (for friends abroad: Sorrel is Roselle aka Hibiscus Sabdariffa and is very popular during the holiday season around here!)

SORREL-VANILLA MINI CAKES

It’s easy to get intimidated by vegan cake recipes because there are all the substitutes to work around. But this recipe uses vinegar instead of your regular flax egg (or other).

For years, Jamaicans have been enjoying something called “bulla & pear”, which is ripe avocado (locally referred to as pear) and a dense,…
