    Sweet Potato is a staple in the Caribbean Islands. It is used as a vegetable, as well as main ingredient in dessert recipes. Rita G. Springer was born in Barbados and educated there. Rita moved to England in 1964 and during her stay, gained the certificate in Nutrition awarded by the Royal Society of Health. In her recipe book entitled "Caribbean Cookbook", Rita presents "authentic recipes, unusual ingredients and exciting cooking"..(the Barbados Sun). I have a special love for Barbados and the people of Barbados and find myself quite frequently referring to the Caribbean Cookbook for dinner party menus. Cook time includes the time it takes to precook the sweet potatoes.

      sitting on the patio at the cassarina or watching the jolly roger sail past. Standing on the cliff's of North Point or climbing the highway toward bathsheba. This dish is barbados. (Happened to have some mount gay amber rum on hand to add authenticity) put it in the oven for 50 minutes in a 2qt glass casserole.

      This is a good recipe. I boiled the sweet potatoes instead of microwaving them. I also used rum and doubled the amount of raisins. Personally, I don't like the lime rind, so next time I'll either omit it or reduce the amount used.

      I grew up with this dish my mother used to make. She is from Barbados and I could never eat the sweet potato dish most Americans eat. Using Mount Gay Rum makes a difference as well. Also, I soak the raisins in the rum (stored in my frig) for at least three months ahead of making this dish. Love it!
