    Arjen, buy name brand bun like National, HTB, Prestige, Maxfield, Purity.
    You ever tried crackers and cheese with guava or strawberry jelly?
    Jamaican cheese is actually New Zealand cheese. Orange in colour and canned, processed so that it can be stored outside of a refridgerator.

    Re: Easta Bun

    Okay, I have two questions for Jamaican cooks:

    What is a dessert spoon? Is that a tablespoon?

    Browning...in the past I have substituted something like Kitchen Bouquet or the like....is that what is really required here? I wish I would remember to buy "browning" in the market in JA!

    Re: Easta Bun

    Well, I would call that a teaspoon (I set a proper table!), and I have seen G2 use that in recipes, so that is why I thought it might be different. I imagine Guinness would be the beer of choice here?

    Re: Easta Bun

    Dessert spoon between tablespoon and teaspoon in size
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spoon

    Guiness Stout should be easy to fine..but so should Dragon Stout

    Not familiar with Kitchen Bouquet..we use browning purchased here..
