Umu!


We made a traditional Samoan umu this past Sunday. We cooked breadfruit, tapioca, taro, baby back ribs, whole chickens, Fai'ai Pikaki (my spelling is probably way off, but its Mackerel mixed with coconut milk and onions, then poured into the half shell of the coconut and cooked on the rocks..its absolutely DELICIOUS!) and palasami (taro leaves with coconut milk)..Due to my very strict diet I didn't really get to eat much, but everyone else that ate said it was delish! I had fun just helping out...

Ulu made an umu. Sorry, couldn't resist:) It looks cool and sounds delicious. You know? There's lots of space up here in Papago, we should fire up one of those things one of these days.
