    lynnski / LA's Note:

    This is a traditional recipe from the Islands that Cape Verdeans still make. Additional seasonings are left to the cook, or table condiments can accompany the dish. This recipe was adapted from the Smithsonian Institution's, 1995 Festival of American Folklife Cookbook. Recipes for the cookbook were contributed by American Cape Verdeans who are active in preserving their cultural heritage. There are about 500,000 American Cape Vedeans.
