bammy
 n.— «At breakfast in his Kingston hotel next morning, a somewhat discouraged Satin was browsing through the local newspaper when his eye fell on a small news item: a group of women in the village of Brown’s Hall were struggling to make ends meet selling something called Bammy bread. “I asked the waitress about it and she told me Bammy was a local bread made from the cassava root that people ate years ago. It was once the favourite accompaniment to a number of dishes, including fish, but you hardly saw it anymore.”» —“Bammy bread bounces back” by Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations Agriculture 21 Nov., 1999.
