Signs of the times: A spicy treat

Whether with one "T" or two, the patties are great,
as the smiling eyes in the price attest.

Waiting for a sandwich at Plainfield's Ferraro II pizza shop near Twin City supermarket, this hand-lettered sign caught my eye.

No matter the spelling, the Jamaican beef patties are quite good -- and spicy, as they should be.

Tiny, very hot Scotch Bonnet peppers give
Jamaican beef patties a special bite.
Filled with ground beef and spices, the really spicy ones are made with Scotch Bonnet, a very hot pepper that resembles a tiny Scottish "bonnet'.
