Good morning world
Hi, its your girl JA Nursing here Today's St Patricks Day or as some would say St Patty's Day. As Parents, it is always important to learn so you can teach.
I was asked some time ago from my kids why they had to celebrate ST Patrick's day? As a Canadian, I must admit I didn't know why we celebrated it either. With the last name Smith (The surname Smith is particularly prevalent among those of English and Irish descent), I was also curious. AM I IRISH? They have always said that the Irish and Jamaican mesh =Get along so let's, find out whats the real deal about St Patricks Day.
- Wash the moss in the sink to remove sand or foreign matter. Bring water to a boil and then add moss, linseed, isinglass, and gum arabic.
- Let the ingredients cook until everything is dissolved, except the moss. This will take about an hour or so.
- Strain the liquid into another container and separate the boiled moss trash from the drink.
- Add the rest of the ingredients to the mixture, now do a taste test. Add more of anything you feel that would make this drink taste the way you want it to.
- Put it to cool in the refrigerator for 4 hours.
- Serve in 12 oz. cups.
This drink can be flavored with other flavorings such as Jamaican Strawberry Syrup, or add Peanut Butter, or Rolled Oats, or Ground Cashews, the possibilities are endless.
