How to Use a Jam Spoon - A Beginners Guide
The term "Jamaica" is associated with delicious, spongy preserves called "jam spoons". These are made by Jamaica's own native people. The plantain leaf extract is what gives the jamshoot its characteristic flavor. Native to West Indies, the plantain leaf extract is also known as a "coconut mimetic". It is the sap of this plant which gives the jams its characteristic flavor and luscious texture.
Because of its soothing effect, plantain leaf extract has been widely used for centuries to treat toothaches, wounds and upset stomachs. The sap of the plantain leaf contains an acid that makes it very effective in reducing pain. Like many other herbs, plantain has been used in the United States as a digestive aid for more than a thousand years. It is taken as tea or in the form of a pill. It is said to relieve heartburn and diarrhea, as well as ease menstrual cramps, diarrhea, gas and bloating. It is even used by alternative medicine practitioners to reduce stress.
In recent years, however, spoons have been making a comeback. In the past, they were solely used as food and beverage utensils. But today, they are more popular as souvenirs.
