“This is from a cookbook called "Food of Jamaica." This cookbook is sold in Jamaica to Jamaicans. It is different from the other sweet potato pone recipes I found here and I like this profile. It's intro - Jamaicans never tire of anything made with sweet potato. This particuar pone, similar to those found in the American South, was inspired by the rich culinary heritage of Africa.”
