Wall Ornament. The Jamaican hummingbird, also known as the Doctor bird, is a beautiful and unique bird species that is found only in Jamaica. Known for its iridescent feathers and long, curved bill, the Jamaican hummingbird is a beloved symbol of the island’s natural beauty and diversity.
One of the most striking features of the Jamaican hummingbird is its plumage. Male birds have a stunning iridescent blue-green head and throat, while females have a more subdued greenish-brown coloring.
Both sexes have long, narrow wings and a distinctive tail that is longer than their body, with two outer feathers that curve upward and are shaped like spoons.
Jamaican breadfruit is a starchy tropical fruit that has been an important food source on the island for centuries. It is a versatile ingredient that can be prepared in a variety of ways, and its nutritional benefits have made it an important part of the island’s heritage.
Breadfruit is a large, round fruit with a green, spiky exterior. Inside, it has a firm, creamy flesh that is starchy and slightly sweet. The fruit is harvested when it is fully mature but still green, and it can be roasted, boiled, baked, or fried depending on the desired preparation.
One of the most popular ways to prepare Jamaican breadfruit is by roasting it over an open flame. This method gives the fruit a smoky flavour and a crispy exterior while keeping the inside moist and tender.
Roasted breadfruit can be served as a side dish or used as a base for other dishes, such as breadfruit salad or breadfruit stew.
