I tripped over this recipe at World Hearth Circle of International Cooking. The fine folks there had adapted this recipe from a book called Iron Pots and Wooden Spoons: Africa's Gifts to New World Cooking by Jessica B. Harris. I was so excited I ordered the book. No joke! I hope you think it looks as enticing as I do.
