On November 19, 1493 Puerto Rico was discovered by Christopher Columbus on his second voyage to claim lands for the Rulers of Spain.  When he arrived the island was called Borinquen by the Indians who lived there, but Columbus named it San Juan Bautista.  Old San Juan is 522 years old.

It has diverse architectural and historic treasures and these make Old San Juan quite distinct from any other place in the world.  It has lively plazas, parks, and promenades, restaurants, and plenty of shopping as well.  One such shop that I visited was Spicy Caribbee located at 154 Cristo Street or Calle del Cristo, Old San Juan, PR 00901  Tel. 787-725-4690  Website?  http://www.spicycaribbee.com

Their Spicy Caribbee line is their own recipe and has been created to make cooking fun.  They have been serving customers since 1988.  They do ship and there is also online shopping, as well.  The photo shows Sica, the owner, taking care of customers.

The hot sauces looked amazing.  It is their recipe and they are made for them.  You can buy individual bottles or the small crates.  Some of the sauces are hot and others are more a condiment to enhance your cooking like the Ginger and Garlic.

If you are in the store you will be able to sample some of the sauces before purchasing.

Coffee is so much of a part of the Puerto Rican tradition.  At any time of the day a cup of coffee is always offered.  Their coffee is from Hacienda San Pedro, which is a family tradition for 4 generations.

Their tropical jams are prepared just for them, as well.  Banana, Mango, Guava, Pineapple, Mango Pineapple and Hot Pepper Jam…use them on toast, pastries or in any cooking were you want to add a bit of the Caribbean.  Honeys and teas!!  Remember that they can ship everything to your home.

Rubs are so easy.  Just rub your chicken, steak, or fish and then decide your method of cooking it….got some of the rubs!!

So as the weather begins to cool off in the Northeast….the Caribbean is warm year-round.
