    Delicious!!! Can substitute dasheen, cassava, green fig for the yam and also substitute smoked herring for the saltfish. I also cook garlic till golden brown then add the provision and saltfish.

    Can I use a food processor for the Pong up yam?

    I will try that with Vincentian white yam and let you know how it turns out.I am trying to grow pimento peppers ( we call them flavor pepper) as I find bell pepper flavor offputting in some dishes, especially when cooked

    What’s the nutritional content of pound yam or pounded yam (Africa)?

    I never acquired a taste for yam; but you cannot stop me from trying pong-up dasheen instead, By the way, have you ever tried fried dasheen….AMAZING!!!!

    I being a lover of eddoes did this dish with the eddoes instead of yam.

    Would camote (Spanish) or kamote (Pinoy) be a good choice for the yam? I couldn't find a photo of it, but I did find a video of some cut-up camote:

      Cynthia, funny you should mention fufu. Back in my high school days we took a school trip to Canada’s Wonderland. A friend and I decided we were going to eat our other friends lunch while he was on a ride. It was something (if I recall correctly) like fufu, with some stewed meat as a topping. Well we ate his entire lunch, then decided to go on one of the tallest and fastest roller coasters in North America. Yes, we learned not to “steal” our friend’s food and never go on such rides after eating. it was a total mess.

      happy cooking
