Heidi is the first mate on board and she’s quite the naturalist. She started digging in the ground with a stick and then asked us all to try this. She said it’s the only starchy type of plant available on these islands and quite often the bears will dig this for a snack. We all picked off a piece for a taste. It was a bit sweet and has a kind of a crunchy texture. The dirt comes off pretty easily although I’m sure the bear just eats that too.
