Jamaican Curry Powder

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2010
I've made this powder twice now, and just love it. As the description states, it is a milder tasting curry but still full of flavor. I made it as instructed, toasting the whole spices first and then grinding them with the turmeric. I strongly suggest you don't skip the toasting, it makes the spices so much more flavorful, and the aromas as you're making it are mouthwatering - you know this is going to be good! I made a curry sauce with this powder by frying garlic, onion and ginger, then added the powder to "toast" it a bit in the wok. Then added coconut milk, salt and pepper, let it simmer for a bit, then the veggies: Potato, cauliflower, red bell pepper, corn and garbanzo beans. Deee-licious! If you want it spicier, add the hot pepper of choice, though I suggest habanero, since that's what is used in Jamaica. I served alongside Jerk swordfish, hence the vegetarian version, but add any meat of your choice to the curry sauce. I say again, Deee-licious.

Spooky Witches' Fingers

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2013
I've made this recipe the last 2 years as is, and has been a hit both at family parties and at work. For an additional creepy factor, I took some slivered almonds, and pushed one or two of them halfway into the end of the finger opposite the "nail".This makes the fingers look like the severed, cracked bones are sticking out of the end. Really effective when you add the red food coloring to give it the appearance of blood. I appreciate the tip of gluing the almond to the end with a bit of jam, since some of my "fingernails" came off when it came time to present and serve the cookies. I will try that tirick next time I make these. Great recipe, so glad I found this! :-) :-) :-)
