Ever wondered how to eat the inner bark of Monterey pine (Pinus radiata)? Watch to see it prepared in a pumpkin soup. This is Day 14 of eating 100% locally grown, raised, and foraged foods from the Hawaiian Islands for the Eat Local Maui Challenge with Project Locavore.
I made banana bread earlier in the day, and ate that until having a potluck where everyone brought local foods. Such a treat to feast with others, and have it all 100% local!
Pumpkin Soup had :: pumpkin gifted from a friend, coconut oil from Locavore Store, wild amaranth greens***, Maui onion from Okoa Farms, turmeric*, ginger from Maui Vintage, thyme*, rosemary*, parsley*, sage*, Hawaiian Volcano Sea Salt, roasted tomatoes from Hana Fresh, homemade chicken broth, fermented lemon*, roasted pumpkin seeds, roasted kukui nut***, inner pine bark***.
Potluck included salad, luau leaf quiche, homemade goat cheese, creamy cucumber salad, chocolates.
