Future Food: Bunya nut - Araucaria bidwillii


Collected from the road side in early December. About the size of a human head, and weighs 2 kilos, thats just shy of 4 and a half pounds!

For more information, and to see the tree these monsters come from check out Wiki's Araucaria bidwillii page.

Sorry theres no more time today - miss you all!

So you will be eating it?
If so you must let us know what it was like. Looks like alot of preparation to eat it though so it will never be fast food.
