Although I may be out of the Virgin Islands it doesn’t mean I am not thinking of it!
So before I write my opening statements let me “Stuff” your food palate up.
One of my favorite classic Virgin Island dishes is “Cruzan (or Crucian) Stuffing” or in St. Thomas and St. John just “Stuffing”. Our three islands may differ on flavors of this dish in terms of sweetness, colors, and amounts of raisins added, BUT the outcome is still the same…it’s DELICIOUS.
For those of you who are unfamiliar with the dish and it’s use, here is the breakdown:
It’s a carb
It’s most often eaten with rice
It can be spicy and sweet
It is made with potato
It is nothing like turkey stuffing
It is similar in taste to sweet potato mash
You can find it in any VI local food shop
These are the highlights, but if your mouth is still watering, take a look at some recipes and demos:
