Jamaica Pie

Earlier this week, Jane cooked up a delicious pie with banana, pineapple, cherries and more. Jamaica? No, she wanted to…

Appalling pun out of the way, it is more or less the recipe I learned from my mum as Jamaica pie. Whether it has much to do with Jamaica or not, I don’t know – a quick online search turns up pages about meat patties rather than a dessert dish. However, there is something about the dish that creates a Caribbean mood. I think it is largely down down to the sweetness of baked banana and then layers of delight are added by the textures and flavours of the additional fruit.

I’m not sure mincemeat is a very Caribbean ingredient but we had some that needed using up. Waste not, want not… and enjoy.
