    Jamaican Slaw Recipe

  • 1 pound (1/2 kilo) purple cabbage, finely chopped (and/or radicchio)
  • 5 red habanero (or 10-12 red jalapeņo) -- (5 to 6) peppers, not seeded - minced
  • 1 large purple onion, finely chopped
  • 6 large cloves garlic, finely minced -- (6 to 7)
  • 6 round red radishes, grated
  • 2 Tablespoons minced cilantro
  • 1/2 cup lime juice (about 6-8 limes)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • PREPARATION:
    Mix all of the ingredients together in a large bowl. It is better to mix the vegetables together first before adding the lime juice and seasonings.

    Stir thoroughly. Taste and adjust the seasonings as desired. Place this hot cabbage slaw in a quart (liter) jar, pack it down, cover and store in the refrigerator, preferably for several days before serving. Occasionally, open the jar and stir to remix the flavors, before packing it down again. Serve as a side-dish relish with other foods, or add it to sandwiches for extra flavor.

    Note :
    If you do not like your foods this hot (and this one is hot!), you can always decrease the amount of peppers that you include. If you are daring enough to use this number of habaneros, be careful how you handle them and wash your hands thoroughly after you do so. Or you'll be sorry! :-D

    The habanero or "Scotch bonnet" pepper originated in the Caribbean. This is an authentic recipe

    <<<< i added some sugar to balance the acids here (to taste) ; and used a Tbsp of lime zest as well. unless you want a Very Funky fridge try cutting down on the garlics. >>
