    Amis's Note:

    This is a corn based delicacy from Barbados that dates back to the 18th century. Traditionally, it's made and eaten almost exclusively during the month of November. Originally it was made to be eaten during the old British colonial celebration of Guy Fawkes Day on November 5th. Posted for Zaar World Tour 05
