woodwoman posted a topic in Australian Native PlantsI think I have found the right place to ask my questions about bunya nut trees. araucaria bidwillii aka. Bunya Bunya Question 1) What is the proper nut collection method? 2) What is the proper preparation for eating the nut? 3) Is the tree sap used for anything like glue, food, poison? 4) What are the spiritual attributes already given unto this tree. I have found it hard to find information on this common species, as to it's traditional uses. I have taste tested the sap and found it O.K. Swallowed some and never felt sick! I found the nuts tasted better cooked than raw. Any one else! Please note: I am Aboriginal and vow to hold any traditional secrets, safe. Private message me if not sure who to trust. Any info welcomed
