    I have lived in St Kitts for most of my life and a true island cook-up includes some pork such as pig, tail or pig snout and has in not just chicken wings but chicken necks and instead of pigeon peas we use either lentils or kidney beans. But it truly is an island dish best enjoyed with a local drink.  -  15 Sep 2008

    I lived on St Lucia for 3 1/2 years and this is SO Caribbean!!! If we were there we wouldn't buy "browning" we would make it by crystalising raw sugar... Recipe is very native to the Islands.  -  15 Sep 2008
