Stuffing is a side dish that is served with many local meals in the BVI.

One day I decided to make this dish at home because it looked pretty easy, I tried Candy Yams because it had a orange look to it but I did not get the texture I was looking for. Next I tried Sweet Potato (Ground Provision) and added sazon. It just was not right.

Sazon is a seasoning and a colouring so if I add it to my rice for example, it would give the rice flavour as well as a nice orange or yellow colour. It can also be used to season your meats.

One day I went to a restaurant and decided to ask one of the workers there how this Stuffing is made and she said simply, “Instant Mash Potato”. I had a good laugh because it is quite simple.

1 pack of instant potatoes
1 cup raisins
1 pack sazon
2 cups milk
2 tablespoons of butter

Put 3/4 water and the raisins in a pot to boil.  Add the pack of sazon.  After about 5 five, add the butter and gradually add the instant mashed potato – keep stirring with a spoon.  You will notice that the potato will begin to absorb the water. Begin to pour in the milk a small bit at a time.  Continue to add the potato until all is used up.  When the consistency of the potato is smooth and firm stop adding the milk.

It is that easy!! I finally got it!!!
