Often served over a ball of fungi (see fish & fungi above), this green soupy one-pot stew is made with local leafy greens & okra and can have pieces of pigtail or local seafood cooked right in. If that’s not your speed, you can get it vegetarian style.

Johnny Cake 

St. Croix Johnny Cakes

This fried bread satisfies the sweet and salty taste many crave! Enjoy one of St. Croix’s most traditional favorites with a fried chicken leg or chicken roasted on an open grill!

Gooseberry Stew

Gooseberry Fruit

Gooseberry Fruit Before the Stew

Made from a small tart fruit, this local favorite transforms into a sweet, decadent stew loved by children and adults alike. Scoop it onto ice cream, mix it into your plain yogurt or eat it straight out of the container. Beware of the tiny seeds found in the fruit’s center. You can swallow one or two but we recommend spitting them out!
