500g by Baron.
An indigenous flavouring sauce. Cassava Sauce [Cassareep] is great for Pepper Pot and adding exotic Caribbean flavour to stews and gravies.
This product is indigenous to Guyana and the Amerindian people. It is a natural sauce extracted from the juice of cassava and is mixed with other spices and boiled to a desired thickness and flavour to give you that incomparable taste.
Cassareep is most commonly used in pepper pots (meat and other products cooked in cassareep and peppers etc). It was used by the Amerindians to keep their food for days without spoilage. Because of its wonderful flavour it is now used in almost all dishes, and as a browning in stews and broths etc.
Great to add colour and taste to chow mein, fried rice, BBQ and much more. Often used in a similar way as browning in western cooking it is the juice of cassava that is reduced and caramelises to a thick sauce.
Ingredients: sugar, cassava extract, water, salt, hot peppers, clove, citric acid, preservative e211.
