Ackee is the national fruit of Jamaica.
The flesh of the fruit is thick and reminds me of a firmer scrambled egg. It’s typically served sauteed with cod, called saltfish in the ‘old country,’ along with onions and peppers.
I never had a lot of it when I was growing up, but these days I associate it with visits to see the family over the holidays.
One of these days, I’ll spend some time cooking my ancestral foods and maybe I’ll give this a try.

One Comment:

  1. I plan to have lots of ackee when I visit Jamaica later this summer.
