at the Last Supper. This tradition came to Panama from, originally from England.
However, before reaching our isthmus, bon stopped in the West Indies which were
colonized by the British, including Jamaica and Barbados. As many of these
islands were uninhabited as a result of the extermination of the Indians by the
Spanish and later by the British, many African slaves were brought to this land to
be occupied in the cultivation of sugar cane and other agricultural items.

Bon ingredients are flour, butter, yeast, candied fruit, raisins, cinnamon, vanilla, nutmeg,
cheese and ground orange peel or other citrus. These ingredients result in a
hemispherical pan, as 6 inches in diameter and significant, which externally has a
bright reddish brown and similar to molasses. At the top is placed a piece of
