Pepperpot Stew

Pepperpot is a dish that many will enjoy during the time of Christmas to New Year's Day.

One ingredient that helps a pepperpot with that special taste is Cassareep. Cassareep is a sauce base that is used in Caribbean dishes as well. The root of the cassava plant helps make this browning / thickening agent. Be careful as raw cassava juice contains a large amount of cyanide.

The tradition is for the pepper pot to sit in a lidded pot on the stovetop from Christmas day until New Years day. There is no worry about refrigeration or food poisoning. The pot is heated to a simmer daily. Pepperpots are said to help keep you healthy. It is also a great way to soothe a hangover when bread is dripped in the pepperpot mixture.
