Solomon Grundy

Solomon Gundy is usually served with crackers as an appetizer or hors d’oeuvre. The term “Solomon-a- Gundy “ may come from the British word salmagundi, used to refer to a salad of many different ingredients. There is also a popular Jamaican poem called “Solomon-a-Gundy” which is based on the Europe nursery rhyme called “Solomon Grundy” .

Solomon-a-Gundy Poem:

Solomon-a-Gundy, born on a Monday,
christened on a Tuesday,
married on a Wednesday,
took ill on a Thursday,
worse on a Friday,
died on a Saturday,
buried on a Sunday,
that is the end of Solomon-A-Grundy
