1 cup grated coconut

1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp mixed spice
2 cups coconut milk
1 1/2 cups brown sugar

Place one cup mixture into quailed (lightly heated) banana leaves.
Wrap and tie with a string or banana bark.
Put the small parcels into enough boiling water to cover, and cook for one hour.

Serves 8

Dear Readers,

I believe this recipe should be selected in the top three for winning an award because this is just so simple to prepare and affordable.

You can always pick up the ingredients for general menus and prepare the Jamaican Blue Draws.

With this recipe, you can have it ready in just an hour - and serve hot and yummy to families and friends.

As a youngster growing up North East Manchester, I was exposed to preparing this recipe, thanks to my late Grand Mother. She prepared Blue Draws ever so frequent to serve people from near and far.

Many times after serving she realized there is none left for her. She had to prepare a new batch!

Another good thing about the Jamaican Blue Draws is that it is loved by all age groups, children love the unique and amazing taste. This is frequently consumed with milk.

I would encourage everyone to try a batch of the Jamaican Blue Draws this weekend you have absolutely nothing to loose. I promise you will be glad you did!

Greetings Carolyn

Thank you for posting the recipe.

For those of us who dont have access to banana leaf can we substitute it with aluminium foil?
