About This Video:
I made a hashbrown from Polynesian arrowroot. A hashbrown is typically made from potatoes where it is mashed and baked on a pan. Here I made it from wild growing Polynesian arrow root instead of potato. I’d made Polynesian arrowroot starch before but this time I cooked the mash along with the starch. It made a sort of gelatinous pancake, similar to dishes made with cassava. The mash needed soaking in water to eliminate bitter compounds that make it unpalatable. The pancake was starchy and still slightly bitter due to time constraints but would taste better if soaked and drained more times. It would make a good famine food if none other were available as the starch is high in energy.

About Primitive Technology:
Primitive technology is a hobby where you build things in the wild completely from scratch using no modern tools or materials. These are the strict rules: If you want a fire, use a fire stick – An axe, pick up a stone and shape it – A hut, build one from trees, mud, rocks etc. The challenge is seeing how far you can go without utilizing modern technology. I do not live in the wild, but enjoy building shelter, tools, and more, only utilizing natural materials.
