One World, Many Stories: Jamaican Food, Schools, & Money
I discovered that the national dish of Jamaica is ackee and saltfish. The saltfish is imported, but the ackee grows on trees in Jamaica which, when prepared, resembles scrambled eggs! I also learned that if an ackee is split open before it is ripe, it releases a deadly poisonous gas. All the ackees we had was, happily, ripe enough! Jamaicans also eat a lot of bananas. They fry or boil green bananas.
