Ducana and Saltfish are an Easter tradition in the islands usually eaten on Good Friday in lieu of meat. More so Antigua than any other, but due to migration and proximity, other islands have adopted the recipe. Ducana/canky is made of sweet potato and grated coconut. Source: Jack Schouten, 2010 Definition: (Spelled “kanki”). “coconut, cornmeal, sweet potato, seasoned paste; rolled, tied and boiled in a banana leaf.” Ducana Ingredients: 2 cups grated coconut* 2 cups grated sweet potatoes 2 cups of sugar 1 tsp cinnamon 1 tsp grated nutmeg 1 tbsp of vanilla extract 1 cup of raisins 1 ½ cups of flour Ducana Directions: Grate coconut and sweet potatoes in a blender. You will need some liquid to help the grating process, either use the coconut water, milk or just water, but no more than 1 1/2 cup of liquid. Mix all the ingredients in a bowl in the order they appear in the ingredients. Cut 10×12 pieces of foil paper to wrap the ducana. (If you are in the islands you use banana leaf if it easily accessible…u can usually go and cut them from your yard foil is really the substitute for the banana leaf) Use a ladle or large spoon to scoop the batter into the center of the foil then fold the foil 2/3 of the way, covering the mixture. Fold the batter and foil once more (or twice depending on the size of batter you scooped out) making sure to keep the ends pinned so the batter doesn’t ooze out either side. The foil and batter should look like a flattened cylinder. Fold in/ roll up each end of the foil to seal in the batter. Place ducana in boiling water and cook for 30 minutes. […]
