Somewhere in Haiti, Kabrit la sou dife - How to cook goat meat Haitian party style

Somewhere in Haiti, Kabrit la sou dife... We have just started cooking the goat meat, and the chef is putting the final touches. LOL...

This is how you cook goat meat Haitian backyard party style: Find a big chodyè, dump the entire goat meat in there, throw in the ingredients, some plantains, some rhum Barbancourt and voila!

Goat (kabrit) and Guinea fowl (pintade) are two favorites dishes of the people in the Plateau Central department of Haiti.

Whenever you're in Hinche, be sure to enjoy some boiled kabrit or pintade. you will love it.

Senkant Kob: Once upon a time, this was equivalent to a dime in the United States (Haiti Money - Haitian currency)

Senkant Kob: Once upon a time, this was equivalent to a dime in the United States (Haiti Money - Haitian currency)

Here is a photo of an old 1975 Haitian coin, 50 centimes or Senkant Kob in Creole, this is half or 1 gourde. Back in those days, One US dollar was worth 5 Gourdes.

Once upon a time, this was equivalent to a dime in the United States. Nowadays, no such coin exists in Haiti, the smallest coin in circulation is the 5 gourdes. You may find one gourde but you can't buy anything with it, not even a candy, something that sekant kob could buy 10 of back in the days.

On the coin is written: Liberte, Egalite, Fraternite... Augmentons La Production Alimentaire (Freedom, Equality, Fraternity ... Let's increase Food Production)

Haitian Creole: Nan tan lontan, ti nèg te ka achte 10 bonbon lanmidon ak lajan sa a. oswa w te ka fè chwa 10 tito, 2 bout kann anana, 10 dous lèt, yon citronade, 5 biswit a manba, 10 wayal (kasav ak manba) osinon yon boutey kola. Konye a yon grenn mant vann 10 goud.
