Ah Come Fo’ Me Guavaberry Story (Ä Cum Fō Mā Gwävä Bĕrē) - The Stew Pot
Translation: I Come For My Guavaberry
When the artist, Ama, returned home, she wanted to learn how to stew guavaberry. Fortunately, her paternal grandmother was a farmer and her son, Ama’s father, loved the garden as well, so they left behind land bountiful with guavaberry trees which had not been destroyed by hurricanes.They also left an old time cast iron pot, the plot to stew the berries from Ama’s garden; she learned to stew from an elder in the community. The guavaberry stew is used in cakes, tarts, drizzled over ice cream and of course to refresh the guavaberry wine passed on from generation to generation.
