Ingredients

Directions

Strip the stalks from the dasheen leaves and wash and dry the leaves. Cut leaves into fine pieces. Set aside.

Heat oil, if using, in a large pot over medium-high heat, and then add crab meat, okra, pig's tail, green onions, onions, thyme, and garlic. Saute for 3 to 4 minutes. Place whole hot pepper in pot, then add 2 cups of boiling water and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for about 1 hour, or until all ingredients are tender.

Remove hot pepper. Whisk in the dasheen leaves until well blended. Serve with rice, potatoes or boiled dasheen root.

Cook's Note

Dasheen is a variety of taro; the leaves of the taro root are called callaloo in the Caribbean. If you cannot find dasheen leaves or taro root leaves, substitute spinach.
