  • ANSWERS to the QUIZ OF THE MONTH (Christmas Edition)

    QUIZ of the Month (DEC06) <font color="green">Christmas </font> <font color="red">Edition</font>

    Here's the latest edition of our QUIZ of the MONTH feature. There are 10 questions, each one with 4 potential answers. Choose the best answer.

    The Quiz is designed like a poll. The results will show not the correct answers, but the answers that the majority of the participants have selected. For correct answers check back as I will post them at the completion of the Quiz.

    This months questions are are all Christmas related. It is fairly easy, and more for entertainment value than usual.

    Please post any suggestions or questions below. I hope you enjoy another session of Jamaicans.com edu'tainment. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/70409-waytogo.gif[/img]

        The majority is wrong on 4 -- if you count the maceration process favored by real cooks. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

              Traditionally, good cooks in Jamaica macerate or soak their candied and other fruits in rum and brandy and other spirits at least a year ahead of making
              christmas cake/pudding. One month ahead is a wrong answer.

                According to Mrs. Enid Donaldson, in her <u>The Real Taste of Jamaica</u>, [i]Christmas cakes and puddings can be made up to 4 weeks before serving, as they actually improve with age.
