Crisp Praline Recipe
Pralines are usually made with pecans, but what if we change things up and match the praline with different flavors? A great way to end a delicious family meal is to prepare a delicious dessert — with a Praline recipe. A decadent dessert that has a balance of flavor coming from melegueta peppercorns, papaya leather, and pumpkin seeds. The tropical sweetness from the papaya, citrus, and herbs from the pepper and crunch from the seeds is the perfect combination that will satisfy your sweet tooth. It has a mix of flavors and textures that everyone will love. These ingredients represent the diaspora of African derived people’s food. You don’t get more American than the pumpkin. Melegueta pepper is an important spice in a lot of West African cooking. Papaya is now found all over the tropics as are Black people.
