JAMAICAN VEGETABLE RUNDOWN

RUNDOWN

Ingredients for rundown:
2 medium-sized dried coconuts (available in Caribbean or Latino food stores)
Just enough water to chop coconuts in blender

Break open the coconuts. Taste to ensure they are fresh. Remove the coconut “meat” from the shell with a knife. This is dangerous as you run the risk of cutting yourself. Therefore you should proceed cautiously until you get the hang of it. Cut the coconut “meat” into small pieces and chop up in a blender using the chop setting. Chop coconuts in batches so as not to overload the blender.

Blend the coconut in batches until the coconut is a fine consistency and the liquid resembles milk. Use a large strainer to separate the coconut from the milk. Hand squeeze any remaining milk from the residue.

In a large uncovered cooking pot bring the liquid to a rapid boil then reduce the flame to medium and cook until the water evaporates and what remains is a combination of clear liquid (oil) and custard. This takes approximately 1 to 11/2 hours. Add salt to taste. As it cools, the custard will absorb most of the oil. Yields approximately 1 cup of rundown a mixture of about 1/3 oil and 2/3 custard.

OTHER INGREDIENTS
(1) 2 cloves garlic chopped up
(2) 1/2 one large green pepper cut into medium to small pieces
(3) 1 medium sized onion chopped up
(4) 1/4 spoon dried time leaves
(5) 1/3 scotch bonnet pepper, discard seeds, cut into very small pieces
(6) 1/2 tea spoon salt (optional)
(7) 1 medium sized well ripened tomato chopped into medium to small pieces

(8) 1 medium sized carrot cut into medium to small pieces
(9) 1 chocho or christophine pealed and cut into medium sized pieces
(10) 1 small head of broccoli cut into medium to small pieces
(11) 8 to 10 medium sized whole okra
(12) 8 small portabello mushrooms cut into two pieces (optional)
(13) 1 medium sized zucchini cut into medium sized pieces
