Asham is a traditional Jamaican treat made of parched corn. The parched corn is ground into a very fine powder and mixed with sugar and spice.

Children and adults usually place a little of the powder in their palm and have it. It is available from stores that sell traditional Jamaican sweets. One of these stores is Reggae Treats, an online retailer that has a wide variety of traditional snacks and desserts.
