About Me

I don't bother nobody. I'm a real nice girl. Kind of laid back like a dead squirrel. Da ha, da ha, da ha ha ha ha. On a more serious note, I was born in Brooklyn, NY, then after nine years moved to Richmond,VA and lived there for thirty years. Lived in Fayetteville,NC for two and a half years. I lived in Savannah,GA for two years. I'm back in Richmond right now. I'm a recently divorced Christian BBW foodie concerned about human rights, ex-offender re-entry, recovery from all addiction, behavioral health,natural beauty,healthy living,etc. Right now I'm a caregiver,for the elderly,children and those with special needs and I am also trying to become a professional restaurant reviewer and blogger as well as looking for partners,investors & other resources to open a diner in the Bay Area of California or in Savannah Georgia

Shitto(Ghanaian Hot Sauce Condiment)

We made this sauce with tomatoes,ground smoked fish,ground dried shrimp,beef bouillon powder,onions,ginger,ground habenero pepper and canola oil. There's a link to a recipe at the end of this post.
Shitto,Shitor Din, commonly called Shito is the word for pepper in the Ghanaian native language (Ga) of the capital Accra. Whilst the word for pepper is different for each of the Ghanaian native languages, the word 'Shito' is widely used as the name for the hot black pepper sauce ubiquitous in Ghanaian cuisine.
Shito sauce consists primarily of fish oil and/or palm oil, ginger, dried fish, prawns and/or crustaceans, tomatoes, garlic, peppers and spices. The blend of spices and fish differs between different regions and villages.
