To their shame be it spoken, men in high American quarters have boasted to me of their ability to start a revolution in Haiti at pleasure.
I hope you all try and like this recipe.
It should be remembered also, that in a warm climate like that of Haiti, the people consider more the comfort of their children in this respect than any fear of improper exposure of their little innocent bodies.
Pour 3 cups milk in a heavy-based saucepan with cinnamon sticks and star anise and bring it to a boil, then lowered heat to a simmer.
Americans who have ever enjoyed an authentic Haitian meal will recognize pikliz as the spicy slaw served along with meals.
Sipping on a cup of Haitian hot chocolate with toast really reminds me of home! Let it be remembered that superstition and idolatry in one form or another have not been in the past, nor are they in the present, confined to any particular place or locality, and that, even in our enlightened age, we need not travel far from our own country, from England, from Scotland, from Ireland, France, Germany or Spain to find considerable traces of gross superstition.
