Saltfish & Aki and Johnny Cakes

rockin-good | May 28, 2002 03:16 PM

When at my uncle's house in Jamaica we would always have fantastic breakfasts that included saltfish and Aki and Johnny Cakes. Because unripe Aki are poisonous they are illegal in the US but I know that in Jamaica you could also buy them canned (lucky for me my uncle had many aki trees on his land so we never had to go the canned route). Does anyone know if you can buy canned aki in NYC and if so do any of you have good recipes for it? Also - I can't remember how to make Johnny cakes - do any of you know?
