Conkies, also known at sweet dumplings is a mixture of grated pumpkin, sweet potatoes and coconut, combined with cornmeal, raisins and spices to make a thick batter. The batter is portioned into banana leaves and steamed. In Barbados, Conkies is synonymous with Independence and is always made on this occasion. HAPPY 50TH BARBADOS!
