Not the commercial branded one. I wanted to know if there are any making it locally. Cottage type production. Commercial ones won't be true authentic.

Thanks

Some people use it to stew chicken for diabetics...I'm interested because of that. A friend of mine uses it but since the pandemic has lost contact with a Guyanese who used to sell it.
Do you know amerindians used it to preserve their food for weeks?
There are records of pepperpot being used for more than a week ...no fridge...just added Cassareep to it...

Real interesting

Jeez man this post just hurting my head yes ... hard enough to get good cassareep in Guyana imagine the horrors getting it here.

Once you boil your pepper pot everyday it keeping ... a week is joke ... they got pepper pot boiling for months on end ... no refrigeration required cassareep is a preservative only issue is the meat does mash up so that is why in the Amerindian villages they keep adding meat to their pepper pot.

The problem with getting cassareep in Guyana sometimes is that some unscrupulous persons mix molasses into it so you get short change.

This reminds me of conversation in the 'Guyanese' thread in 2010 about casareep and tennis roles amongst other things.
With all the changes over the last few years, one wonders if Guyana will continue to give the production of casareep the importance it achieved.
Oil wealth leads to the leaving behind of many cultural blessings.
I certainly would be faced with getting a supply very soon.

Bro ... you all fellahs need to know real and i mean real cassareep is made in amerindian villages it is a source of income to them so its production is very small scale ... dutch disease is very unlikely to happen in Guyana because of how big the country is and how diverse its economy is.

If you fellahs only know how the real McCoy is made you all might not want it again ... lol.
