Jamaican Rice and Peas

This recipe is from Marilyn's helper Monica, who owned a restaurant in Jamaica.

Grate meat from coconut, cover with warm water and soak overnight.

Combine all ingredients including coconut and its soaking liquid, except peas in a pot. Simmer until rice is done.

Add peas. Cover pot with plastic wrap and place lid over pot and plastic wrap. Place over low heat for 40 minutes to steam ingredients.
