Rundown Preparation


As I listen to the heavy rain outside, I think of my grandmother making coconut Rundown, a kind of comfort food she used to make on rainy days. Jamaica is the land of woods and water so we have a lot of rain in some parts of the island. Theres a lot of rain here in London too, so more tasty rundown for us.

These are the ingredients shown here.

Coconut, annatto, a colouring spice from the Americas, tomatoes, thyme, onions.

Finally, we can add salted mackerel when the dish is cooked and has the consistency of a deliciously oily coconut custard.

Pumpkin, yam, taro and green bananas, rice are all foods that can accompany this dish. For more on this recipe, watch this space!
