    lynnski / LA's Note:

    This very thick, rich soup is made to celebrate special occasions, such as New Year's eve and special family events. This recipe was adapted from the Smithsonian Institution's, 1995 Festival of American Folklife Cookbook. Recipes for the book were contributed by American Cape Verdeans who are active in preserving their cultural heritage. The Cape Verde Islands are located about 300 miles west of Senegal. Many Cape Verdeans migrated to the Atlantic coast of the U.S., many to Rhode island.

      There was a nice chill to the air today and it reminded me of my youth in Massachusetts. I remembered how my mother would make a big pot of Canja. I never did get her recipe as she never really had one. Well I didn't need it. This Canja was spot on. Obrigada Lynnski for a taste of home.. SO SABE !!
