Today we butchered a pig and prepared a tribal feast – a mumu. A mumu is a specific type of meal from Papua New Guinea where food is cooked on hot stones in a hole in the ground. We put the pig meat, potatoes and sweet potatoes in two layers on top of the hot stones and covered the whole thing up. In Papua New Guinea they use banana leaves instead of aluminum foil 🙂
See for yourself how we prepared the mumu:
After 2-3 hours the food was ready to eat and we had to get it out of the ground. Wow that was delicious! One of the best barbecues ever!
