Hi guys! It’s Radeyah!
Today, my #EdibleLove post is all about Portugal Chow. I realise that Chow has so many different meanings these days, most of which have nothing to do with what I’m about to explain. If you live in the Caribbean, chances are that you understand, but if not, you should know that this kind of chow is basically created by chopping up any fruit and adding salt, black pepper, bandanya and pepper! In our culture, the hotter it is, the better! Chows make a perfect snack for really, any time of the day!
Here’s a detailed explanation of exactly what it entails to create Portugal Chow (it’s really very very easy!):
You will need:
Pepper / Pimento
Peel the portugals and pull them apart and place them in a bowl. Using a knife, gently cut some of the portugal pegs to allow some of the portugal juice to be released into the bowl.
Chop up two stems of bandanya and put it in the bowl. Add salt and black pepper.
Cut up some fresh pepper / pimento and add it to the bowl. The fresh pepper does not need to be cut too much since large pieces will just add the peppery flavour to the chow.
Put a lid on the bowl and shake the bowl to ensure all of the contents are properly mixed together.
Remove the cover from the bowl and eat some yummy portugal chow!
I welcome everyone to try this, and any recipe that I post, and if you do try it, I’d love to hear from you. You can hashtag #EdibleLoveByRadeyah and tag or mention me! I have also created a Pinterest board called “Edible Love” (of course, I mean, what else?) so if you’re on there, feel free to follow my board and re-pin my pins!
