Bahamian Chicken Souse
Vicki Butts (lazyme)
- 3 lb
- chicken wings or chicken parts (can substitute turkey wings or parts or pork ribs cubed)
- 2 large
- baking potatoes
- 1 large
- yellow onion
- 2 medium
- stalks celery
- garlic cloves
- 2 Tbsp
- whole allspice (absolutely necessary) * see note below.
- dried red pepper (can use fresh bird or goat pepper)
Peel and cut potatoes into medium cubes. Place in bowl of tap water until ready to place into pot (to prevent it turning brown).
Cut onion into medium slices.
Cut celery stalks into medium to small cubes.
Crush and finely cut garlic cloves.
When I made this I felt that the allspice was rather overwhelming. Next time I would only use 1T and think that would still impart the unique flavor.
