A variety of indigenous plants have been eaten over the years.
Most are cooked before being eaten, other than fruit and some leaves
which are used as a relish.
Leaves – about 120 species are eaten
These are mostly cooked and then dry meal is added to make a green
porridge, fresh leaves are then added just before serving.
Cooked leaves are also made into cakes which are served as a side dish.
At the end of summer, leaves are dried for winter use.
