DIRECTIONS

  • Mix the coconut, pumpkin, sweet potato, sugar, spices, almond essence, raisins, flour, corn flour, and salt together thoroughly.
  • With a wooden spoon, stir in the melted butter, shortening and milk and mix until smooth.
  • Place 2 heaping tablespoons of the mixture onto each plantain leaf square, fold the edges to make a neat envelope and tie securely.
  • Steam the conkies on a rack over boiling water in a large saucepan, or in a steamer, for about 1 hour or until they are firm.
  • Unwrap the conkies and serve on a heated dish.
  • Note: I may be off on the amount of servings this makes. It's been a while since I made it.
