Trapped, boiled, devoured: how to eat well in the wild

The popular Primitive Technology blog features an anonymous man in Far North Queensland, Australia fashioning tools and structures using only naturally occurring, found materials. In this instalment, he makes a basket trap to catch freshwater prawns, deftly outdoing – or perhaps sending up – the foraged and ‘farm-to-table’ trend in contemporary cuisine. Having trapped a few prawns, he builds a fire and clay pot for cooking into which he drops a sizzling stone to boil them, and then has a small feast with a side of wild yam. To learn more about the step-by-step process while watching, turn on closed captions in the YouTube video player.
