Asham or Brown George is a corn-based dessert in Caribbean cuisine. It is a specialty in all parts of the Caribbean. It may have its origins with the indigenous African and Indian people. It is made by shelling dry corn, parching it in a hot pot and then pounding it in a wooden mortar and sifting it until it is similar to sand. Salt or sugar can then be added to the brown mixture and it can be eaten dry or with water.
