Cooking with Earth Oven Method

The Dani's use an earth oven method for cooking pig and their staple crops such as sweet potato, banana, and cassava.


They heat some stones in a fire until they are extremely hot, then wrap cuts of meat and pieces of sweet potato or banana inside banana leaves.


The food package is then lowered into a pit which has been lined with some of the hot stones described above, the remaining hot stones are then placed on top, and the pit is covered in grass and a cover to keep steam in.


After an hours pit is opened and the food removed and eaten.
