  1. what is chocho and what is pickapeppa?

  2. Hi Candy,

    Chocho is a vegetable other wise known as chayote .This is optional in this dish. Pickpeppa is a sauce used in some Jamaican dish to add flavour and to thicken the sauce, this also can be substituted with a little soy sauce mixed with a little flour or corn starch.
