Jamaica Pepper Pot Soup

Boy, it is cold! There is nothing better to warm you up then a nice bowl of Pepper Pot Soup. We use to eat soup every Saturday. Mommy would start cooking early, so the soup simmered very low. Even today I have to have my soup.


Serves: 4 - 6

1 lb Callaloo or Spinach
12 Okras
12 cups water
1/2 lb salt beef
1/2 lb shin of beef
4 Cups water
1 Can of coconut milk
1/2 lb Yellow Yam (peeled)
Crushed escallion
Sliced hot peppers
Black pepper

(I add some Dasheen an cho cho in mine)

Wash the callaloo then chop finely. Boil in water with the salt beef and shin of beef until beef is tender, usually about 2 hours. Add the coconut milk, yam, okras, escallion, hot peppers, and black pepper. Add water if necessary. Simmer for 30 minutes. Soup should be thick in consistenc
