Yesterday I visited with my grandmother and we shared such beautiful memories of Dominican Republic in olden traditional days and recipes of delicious sweets. Amongst other things, my creative grandmother was also a pioneer in home-made liquors! As she explains it, around the holidays she received requests from neighbors to prepare her famous vintage-style specialty wines and tonics. One of her favorites was a wine she made from the Cajuil fruit (cashew).
Here are a few recipes from Caribbean holiday traditions that she shared with me last night, just in time for the festive season! Enjoy!! 😉
