Turnip and Honey for Flu

Turnip and honey are just an addition to the vast amount of natural ingredients that Jamaicans use to eradicate a flu.

1 raw turnip
3 tablespoons of Honey

Slice turnip and put in a clean, glass jar. Pour the honey over the turnip. Allow the concoction to sit until the turnip starts to spring water (approximately one -two day's time).

Pumpkin Porridge


I finally experimented with Pumpkin Porridge. I have always thought that pumpkin would make an excellent porridge but was always reserved in trying, not because I was counting the economical cost if it failed, but because it is usually hard to try new things.

Well, On that blessed morning of February 20, I tried it and it was a success. Not to mention the added plus, Pumpkin Porridge really tastes good. I will share the ingredients to my experiment with 'Web-Land'

1 lb Pumpkin (chopped and uncooked)
4 cups of water
2 Cinnamon Leaves
1/2 cup Flour
Condensed Milk
1 tbsp Vanilla
A drop of Almond Flavouring

Bring two cups of water to a boil and add salt and cinnamon leaves. Using a cup of water, blend pumpkin cubes in a blender or using a hand mixer until smooth in texture. Add pureed pumpkin to boiling water and stir.

Mix flour in the remaining one cup of water until smooth (without lump), add to pot and stir briskly until flour is incorporated properly into the mixture. Allow to cook for approximately 35 minutes.

Add sugar and milk to taste. Spice porridge with Vanilla, Almond Flavouring and Nutmeg. Remove pot from flame.

Serve in a bowl as desired.

Cure for Colic

This is by no means advice to anyone, but is another home remedy passed on from generation to generation in Jamaica. It is one of those home remedies that make you go whew... yes, it is that weird and that was exactly my reaction when I first heard about this remedy. I think I will drown in curiosity on this one because it is definitely not one I think I would ever like to try... unless of course it is my only and last resort for survival. After all "Never say Never."

The Jamaican Home Remedy for Colic
Urinate (Pee) in your hand and drink this immediately. Because it is said that one's urine is sterile, many Jamaicans who practiced home remedies back in the day thought that this remedy provided relief from colic.

Urine has its place among the plethora of Jamaican Home remedies. It has been used for acne, pink eye and many other ailments. Whether, it is an effective treatment, I would not be able to prove.Again, this is just another remedy that has been practised in Jamaican folklore and not intended to advise, treat or diagnose anyone.
