The Cahune Palm Tree
Brad and Nikasio chopping through the layers to get to the yummy heart of the tree. Once they cut it down (a quite difficult task) they had to chop many layers off, like getting to the middle of an artichoke.
Amy munchin' on the inner part of the cahune (ka-hoon). As we ate, the layers were becoming more palatable.

Ophelia and her Mother-in-Law going to town on the palm. First cutting and then grating it. They used it in a stir fry the first day and then in a soup the next.
