Wild crafted bark..
    #11278859 - 10/19/09 07:32 PM (8 years, 1 month ago)

Irie,
So one of my guys has just dropped off this mulungu buttress root bark.
As well as some Mombin. The only use I've heard of is the calcium in the yopo.
Now I'd like to start off a discussion on wild crafting barks.
The Mulungu comes off much like cinnamon & I expect it to dry in a similar fashion.
I'm also going to be hacking down one of my tabebuia chrysantha Pau d’arco, trunks, in the near future. Looking at doing a similar thing with that too.
Mulungu

Mombin

Irie,
I guess there's not enough to discuss. So here's some more photo's
Cocoa & Moringa.

Thanks for the post mate!

Excuse my ignorance Zaka, but what do you do with the bark of each species?

Irie,
The Cocoa is the Mrs., she'll pound them into a wooden mortar & pestle, then roll into balls, which are dried to solid bars, kept in the fridge and grated for the morning tea.
I try and spike the tea with different medicinal plants in order to get them in to the kids. example; Justicia pectoralis for fevers, Lemon Bay leaf, cos it taste so good! You can slip almost anything in there!
The Moringa leaf is dried and crushed into a powder. One gram of this has pretty much all the vitamins you need for one day. I like to sprinkle it into my Jamaican ackee & rice, it's knocking! But I been trying to help a friend that has cancer & can't keep much food down. This stuff helps a lot.
The tabebuia chrysantha Pau d’arco, I had planted this tree some years ago, mostly for it's fantastic bloom of huge yellow flowers. Whilst I was doing some gardening, I found the bright yellow roots, same color as turmeric. This got me thinking & I started digging around to find out it's uses. This another one I slip in  the tea, but most of this will be ground up for my friends cancer treatment.
The Mombin I some times use for carvings, but I wanted to try and make some snuff ash. Just focking around.
I really wish I knew about the mulungu last year. Had a storm that knocked down 6 huge trees about 120 feet tall. That would probably enough for a life time!

Thanks for the schooling Zaka, I hope your friends condition improves.

I bet that Cocoa smells great. Moringa sounds interesting, I just been doing some reading on it and it has some great qualities. A good one for the garden methinks...

The Art of tooling Canelle [Re: Zaka]
    #11417278 - 11/09/09 10:16 AM (8 years, 1 month ago)

Irie,
The Art of tooling Canelle, Cinnamon.
First slice off with a shape knife the outer bark.



Cut just through the bark.


Then gently knock with a Rum bottle.



Then peel back the bark.

I have some molungu bark in my fridge. It's relaxing to drink the tea now and then.

“A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship.” (attributed to Alexis de Tocqueville political philosopher Circa 1835)

Irie Stoney,
Yeah been hitting it hard, fresh & with the fresh cinnamon, the Mrs loves it. 2 cups of tea at night, then refill and steep overnight, reboil in the morning. Got a nice zing to it!
She has been much more chilled, lately.:cool:
Nice real nice!

Nice thread Zaka. Those cocoa bars look great.

Good pictorial on the cinnamon process too. Does it grow wildly where you live?

Irie Tripsis,
If they grow wild.....yeap it's a friggin' jungle out here.
The Cinnamon trees are from the guy in the photos land. It's like 3.5 acres of rainforest. You know parrots and tarantulas, tree ferns & orchids.
They get harvested when they about 15-20yrs.
Respect
