*When you lose your old world traditions, you lose important info. Anyone with 'old world' traditions cleans meat in some way whether it is
wil lemon, lime, garlic,white vinegar or salt & water.
Cross contamination is not a problem from washing meat b/c you are not splashing the wash water everything and you are still heavily bleaching the utensils and countertops before cooking the food.
People have been washing meat around the world since the beginning of time. Then get to the melting pot of USA and start doing what they see white folks do then start getting white man sicknesses like frequent stomach viruses (ecoli). THEN white hipsters will sell you a $25 e-book for your Kindle about cleaning meat and you will think that you have the new radical health food innovation. Then Doctor Oz will have some blockbuster episode teaching you how to clean meat and it will be a big rage to clean meat as though folks havent been doing it.
look here ive never heard of one case of e-coli salmonella ebola virus in Jamaica everrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr from i born. food poisoning rare too
My mommy says 1) coconut oil that they used to cook with everyday was somhow bad for you and then braps! its the hot thing again
2) bulgar same thing
3) lemon grass that we call fever grass
4) sorrel similar antioxidants
lawwdd when there was this push for cocnut water over the last few years i nearly DIED!
Everyday its another raas miracle food- fruit, plant that we (the people of colour) have been using since time immemorial (back it wasn't oh so backward then, for using the fruit of the land instead of their mass produced commercial additives and preservative laden ish) but when YTs jump on it, its the new holy grail and prices reach sky high (noni, acai berry, pomegranate)
Sidenote many Jamaicans fail to realise pomegrante is the fruit we call "pang-ga-nut" and many other deviations of that phrase "punny granny" is one
! so they stay paying$$$$ for supm in their front yards
AND they just cant read the word. I swear even yesterday i had to point it out to my friends, by having them sound out the word "pomegranate" on the bottle of body wash they were using #dead
