Tumultuous Uproar

A cruising boat with a racing problem...

fruit de pain en Guadeloupe

17 May 2016
As the latitude ticks down we continue to have new experiences. We are now in the 17's in Des Haies, Guadeloupe.

A homeless man spent a great deal of time telling me about his deceased family and the fact that he needed money and that I should buy his breadfruit. All in French of course, not much English here. I bought a huge one for 2 Euros.

Next was a half hour search on the internet and youtube to see just what to do with it. I learned how to skin it and wash the Elmer's glue-like substance off my hands. The grill was lit and slices were marinating in sour orange, salt and goat pepper.

A squall came in which kept blowing out the grill. Such is life on a boat. So down to the galley to fry the slices in oil.

Lisa said, "Let's sprinkle them with Parm cheese." We did and looked forward to a French West Indies treat. Well....they tasted like nothing. A further check on Google indicated that they were high in vitamin C. So we've got that going for us.
