      I finally got around to this one. Took a while for my Tropical Traditions order to arrive, so I sort of back-burnered this recipe. It’s wonderful and my hands are a lovely shade of orange. Note to self: use a basting brush and disposable plastic gloves.

      The red palm oil is a unique taste. I think Mark Sisson said it was something you either love or hate. Good thing I like it, I got a large jar. So we will be having this again!
