Gary Rhodes and Ezekial Jackson make sweet potato and coconut wraps from Antigua. Try pairing them with pineapple salad for a stunning dessert
Method1. Mix the sweet potato, coconut, flour, sugar and spices in a large bowl. Stir in the butter to make a sticky paste.
2. Lay out a piece of tin foil on a work surface and tip enough mixture to make a rectangle about 5cm by 3cm, and 2cm high. Wrap the tin foil around it to create a sealed packet. Repeat with the remaining mixture.
3. Bring a large pan of water to the boil. Carefully drop the ducana parcels into the water and cook for 15 minutes.
4. Remove from the pan and unwrap before serving.
