As mentioned in a previous post, I enjoy learning about cultures especially in the regions that become settings in my novels. I found that food plays an important role in the world. As family and friends gather to celebrate important occasions, the local delicacies are abundant for the guests.
In all my novels, food preparation and dining have been important elements for developing scenes and showcasing the setting, while character building. A fun and courageous feat for me!
Many of the scenes in my latest novel, ONE, are set in Barbados. So, of course, Bajan cooking found its way onto the pages. Here’s one of my favorite dessert dishes — Bajan Pineapple Pie.
Bajan Pineapple Pie Recipe
1 – 14 ½ oz can of chunky pineapples
1 – 8 oz Cream Cheese
1 – Envelope Unflavored Gelatin
1 – 8-inch Graham Cracker Pie Crust
Drain pineapple chunks – keep syrup, add water if necessary, to make one cup.
Heat syrup and add gelatin, stir till dissolved – divide in half. Keep one half in the pot.
To the half in the pot, add cream cheese. Heat and stir until melted and smooth. Pour into graham cracker crust. Chill until firm.
Once firm, place pineapple chunks on top and pour the remainder of the warm ½ gelatin mixture over the pie to glaze. Chill and enjoy it!
A new book trailer for ONE is now ready to view. I hope you enjoy it!
