Conkies aka Dunkanoo 3 ripe plantains 1/2 teaspoon grd. cinnamon 2 tablespoons butter 2 tablespoons sifted flour 1/2 cup brown sugar Banana leaves or aluminum foil 1/2 teaspoon grated nutmeg Makes 1 Dozen. Place the plantains in a pot of salted water boil them until they are tender. In a bowl, mash the plantains with a fork and add the butter, sugar, and spices. If necessary, add a little flour to make thick paste. Wash the banana leaves and make them pliable by boiling them. Cut the leaves into pieces about 6 inches square. Then drop 2 tablespoonsful of the plaintain mixture onto each piece of leaf, roll it up, fold it over and tie the ends. Fill a large heavy saucepan with water and bring it to a boil. Add the conkie packages and boil them for 45 to 50 minutes Serve warm This is a great traditional bajun dish that is thought to be a descendant of Ghana's Kenkey. Conkies can be either sweet or savory and can be made with everything from grated fresh corn to plantains. When made with corn or cornmeal they are also called Dunkanoo... Err....this is kind of an acquired taste. It took me a while to realize I was allergic to the banana leaves. You can use something else Im sure.
