Yes I remember Duckunoo and I think my grandmother made the best ones I've ever had. It has been many many years since I have eaten Duckunoo. Thanks for the recipe I will try making it one of these days.

Yes I remember the taste of blue draws very well!
My Father was a banana farmer among other things, so we always had plenty of green bananas to spare.
I also remember that these tie leafs instead of being boiled, could also be baked buried under hot wood ash with a wood fire burning on top of them!
In this case, I cannot remember with what you would have used to tie the leaves .
