Jug Jug (Barbados)

75 mins (prep 15, cooking 60)
15 ingredients
4-6 servings
This recipe is from week 23 of my food blog, "Travel by Stove." I am attempting to cook one meal from every nation on Earth, and Barbados is my 23rd stop. Fair warning: I didn't like this recipe, and if I was the sort of person who posts one star reviews I wouldn't have a lot of nice things to say about jug jug. But is recipe is enjoyed all over Barbados on Christmas day, so clearly my tastes just aren't suited to it. For that reason I am posting it anyway, and because it was the focal point of my Bajan meal even though I didn't personally care for it. So please be kind! You have been warned.
