Hey , Melda two for two family .

Welcome back and thank you for tuning in today .

So today I will be preparing Bahamian peas and rice .

Yes , peas and rice .

If you want to see how this is prepared , continue watching .

OK .

On my cutting board , I have a half of a medium onion .

A stick of celery , a half of a bell pepper and a medium ripe frozen tomato cut up , chopped up .

I have a tin of pi pigeon pee dried pigeon peas , hunts tomato paste , red pepper flakes , salt and some Crisco corn oil and of course a £2 package bag of PABA rice .

Now I'm frying down the onion and the celery first in about two tablespoons of the , of the Crisco oil because they take long , they take the longest to , to cook .

Now I'm smashing one clove of garlic , keeping my um , onion and celery in the oil , giving it a quick stir .

And then I'm going to add to that .

The ripe tomato chopped , ripe tomato , OK ?

And I'm gonna stir that together .

Mixing it in that one wasn't cut .

That piece isn't cut all the week .

So just trying to separate it with my , with the spoon .

That's about a half a table , half a teaspoon of salt .

Oh , not a table and a teaspoon of pepper flakes .

Now , here I am pulling the leaves off off of the , um , thyme , just the leaves and then I'm gonna put the , the stems in as well .

Now , we don't eat the stems .

The stamps adjust to help with the flavoring to that .

I'm going to add my green bell pepper .

That's a half and the clove of garlic .

I didn't add those in with the onion and the celery because they tend to cook the fastest and I don't want them burning .

So that's why I fry the onion and the salary first .

Now I'm racing off the top of the , of the pea pigeon pee and the hunts tomato paste because in the food store it's dust and everybody touching and all that .

When you open it , whatever's on the outside on the top of it is gonna go into it .

So rinse it off first .

That's the , I'm opening with my manual opener .

I need to get a , an electric one .

I had one but it went bad .

So doing it manually .

I'm getting it though .

I'm an island girl so I know how to do it just to be careful with those cans .

Now I'm gonna add some browning to that just to give it a nice color when it's finished .

Nice brown , brownish color .

I'm gonna add it to um the pigeon pee to it .

That's a tablespoon .

I'm gonna get two of those .

Uh two of those of tomato paste to my pot peas and rice .

Now it might look white now but when it boils down , it's gonna turn brown .

I'm giving it a quick taste .

Need some more salt .

I'm giving it a stir .

Please check .

Ok .
