CONKIES



Conkies image

This is from the Government of Barbados' website. This has got to be one of the most refreshing looking recipes I have ever seen. The recipe does not say how long to steam, but I guess estimate it at about 25 - 30 minutes.

  • In a bowl mix together the grated coconut, pumpkin, sweet potato, flour, spices, sugar, vanilla extract and almond essence. Mix them together.
  • If you are wrapping with banana leaves: If you are using fresh banana leaves then you need to wash them and quickly pass them over fire. But if you got the leaves from the grocery store then they have already been prepped and washed. Spoon 3-4 tablespoons of the batter to the center of the leaf. Take each sides and bring them to the center then take each ends and bring them to the center. Using a string, wrap it around the leaf being sure to tie the ends together. Make sure to wrap the conkies tightly so water wouldn't get into them.
