Arrived in Suriname, and now what?
No canned red peppers available and for bacon you have to go into town. Canned fish is limited to sardines, tuna, salmon and mackerel; so no pulpo and interesting shellfish. No carrots but many other tasty vegetables; and lots of fruit. Furthermore many Eastern products such as sweet and sour vegetables and tasty marinades and sauces. So something completely different.

"Bep's Broodkoek"; an irresistible bread pudding, especially great during night watch

- soak old bread in milk
- add cocos, raisins, sugar and lots of cinnamon
- melt butter in a frying pan, add the bread mixture and cook for about 20 minuten on both sides

Long life "fresh"
Cabbage (o.a. to prepare coleslaw)
Peppers  (limited)
Cucumber (limited)


Ham (flow packed)
