question or comment
I have had Callaloo soupmany times in St Vincent and the Grenadines (especially on Becquia) but all the recipes I find on the internet have loads of add ons -- pigs' feet, crabmeat, tomatoes -- so how refreshing to find a recipe that is simply Callaloo! I'm trying itthis week end and will let you know how it goes down
