Mumu (Traditional Stone Cooking) Demonstration

The food usually consists of sweet  potatoes, yams, bananas, taro, and chicken or pork. These ingredients are mixed together and placed inside freshly cut leaves from a banana tree.  The banana leaves are wrapped tightly so that no air can leak out, and just before the package is sealed, coconut grease is poured into the package to flavor the ingredients. The package is then placed on the pile of hot rocks and covered with additional rocks and coconut husks.
