This recipe was given to us verbally by Telcita Joseph, an sweet old woman we met in a shoppe in the town of Grenville, while traveling around Grenada in June, 2003. Telcita didn't say much about her ginger sweets, but she was proud to say her father made 22 children, and that she is number seven.

The picture was taken inside her shop. That's Telcita in the middle.
