Psst….I don’t know who needs to hear this but that regular boiled corn ain’t cutting it this Thanksgiving! Give them something to talk about and make some sweet, buttery corn boiled in coconut milk, thyme, scotch bonnet, scallion, and go on and throw a packet of Grace chicken soup flavor or cock soup flavor in there while you’re at it. Then tell them that nurse can cook showed you how to do it 😎 . . .Full recipe video is on my 🎥YouTube channel: THAT NURSE CAN COOK. If you can’t find it simply type that nurse can cook seasoned boiled corn in your search! . . . #jamaica #eatingthecaribbean #caribbeanfood #westindies #beachfood #traveljamaica #islandfood #Guyana #haiti #Antigua #Anguilla #ABCislands #trinidad #TurksandCaicos #oceanfood #healthyeats #thatnursecancook #virginislands #caymanislands #Belize #Barbados #bestcaribbeanfood #homecookedmeal #thanksgivingwithblackfamilies #cornonthecob #thanksgivingrecipes #macaroniandcheese
