Once again I am indebted to Cecilia for helping me out with Grenadian cooking. She told me the bluggoe would be delicious simply fried in butter with a little salt and pepper. She also demonstrated how to peel and cut one. Her facility with doing so--she peeled and neatly sliced one of the bluggoe in a few seconds, making it look so very easy--made me feel like a clumsy first-time cook when I tried to copy her actions a little later. Bluggoe may look like bananas, but they don't handle like them! Nevertheless, I finally managed to come up with this:
Here's the finished dish. It was delicious--everyone, even the pickiest among us--liked it. It tasted a little like fried potatoes and would be a good potato substitute for any meal.
Tomorrow Cecilia is going to cook a full meal for us right here in our cottage. You can bet I'll have pictures of that for you! If only I could also send some tastes through the world wide web!
