Oil Down

Oil DownOil Down, is a colloquial Caribbean name for any dish of vegetables cooked in coconut milk until all the milk is absorbed and the ingredients have turned into a creamy mush (or have ‘oiled down’). The two most popular oil downs are breadfruit oil down and cassava oil down. Oil down is really something to experience first-hand, I am not sure that I can convey the creamy, buttery, saltiness that envelops one with each bite. Just trust me, it’s something you want to try for yourself :)

I hope to be making a cassava oil down that I will share with y’all in the near future. Until then Trini food blogger ‘can cook, must cook’ has 2 classic recipes for a breadfruit oil down over at her blog. Check it out!
