Most of the food we use in the Caribbean has an African origin.


Conki the root word from African Kenkey

Barbados' famous conkie is a corn based traditional dish which is also referred to as stew dumpling. It has been said that conkies have been derived from a Ghanaian dish called 'kenkey', a similarly prepared corn meal dish

This is made from cornmeal, grated coconut, grated potato, grated pumpking, spices and butte the mixture is then wrapped in banana leaves and put in a saucepan to steam.

Pap

This a porridge is made with cornmeal, grated coconut (optional) and milk and added spice. I ate this as a girl .Interesting the term we used here in Barbados is PAP the same word that is used in South Africa.

Cornmeal was and still is a staple of Caribbean people.

Will cover some more later.

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl
