5S

Welcome to 5S!

We are taught by Miss Swain and supported in class by many other wonderful adults.

 

Come and look at all the wonderful things that we have been learning in class this year!

We really enjoyed making Guacamole in class together this term. Why not try following the recipe and making it at home?

 

How to make Ancient Mayan Guacamole

 

Did you know that avocados, now available all over the world, were once a treasured crop of the ancient Maya?  Even today a person from Antigua Guatemala is often called a panza verde, or green belly.  To make this sumptuous appetiser, simply follow these instructions and transport your taste buds back in time!

 

Ingredients:

1 large avocado (the bigger the better)

1 lime

1 small red onion

A good pinch of coriander

1 fresh tomato (preferably plum)

A pinch of salt and pepper

A pinch of chilli powder

2 tsp olive/sunflower oil

 

Instructions:

  1. First, peel and remove the stone from the avocado before mashing it roughly with a fork.
  2. Next, slice the tomato, onion and coriander as finely as you can (smaller pieces will create a smoother texture).
  3. After that, slice open the lime and squeeze the juice over the avocado
  4. Then gradually blend the remaining ingredients (except the chilli powder) using a spoon and combine the flavours together. 
  5. Now sprinkle the chilli powder over the top of your guacamole according to your personal taste.
  6. Finally, serve immediately with crunchy tortilla chips and become a panza verde!

 

Important tip

To check that your avocado is ripe, peel back the small stem or cap at the top. If it comes away easily and you find green underneath, you've got a good avocado that's ripe and ready to eat.
