The Caribbean, known for its beautiful sandy beaches, the lush tropical climate, an abundance of delicious fresh fruit, is a place I would vacation all over again. Jamaica represents the Caribbean lifestyle, influencing the world’s love for Reggae music made famous by Bob Marley, their endearing Jamaican Patois accent, and the Caribbean/Jamaican food. But with tropical fruit, Jamaica has the corner on the good stuff.
Jamaica grows many unique native fruits including mangoes, June Plum, sweetsop, soursop, tamarind, guava, cherries,
One thing I enjoyed eating during my stay in Jamaica was their mixed fruit salad splashed with honey and lime juice. Although I most often enjoy fruit in its natural state, this recipe was a refreshing departure. The combination of fruits tucked inside the empty pineapple shells makes an impressive display for gatherings and potlucks. I love using the leftovers (if there are any) in my smoothies, topped over yogurt parfait, oatmeal, or ice cream for a special touch of Caribbean flavor.
