Jamaican cookware

The key to good food in Jamaica is using good cooking utensils. Every Jamaican knows that you need a good cooking pot and pan to prepare the food. Usually very heavy pots.

Early Jamaicans used the "Calabash" to serve their dishes.

This is a traditional Calabash. It is grown not only for its fruit but as stated previously the mature plant can be dried and used as a gourd for drinking or a container for serving food.
