WILD FERN

Posted by Kenyah Lepo Tau, Sarawak (Borneo) on May 31, 2012 at 6:00 AM

This wild fern grows in a very humid tropical weather.  This is one of the many ferns that grows in Borneo and according to my Kenyah native, this fern is safe for consumption. The taste is very bitter. 

Here are some opinions that I have gathered:

I. In Kenyah, it's known as Paku Julut, Paku Sanit, Pahen chulut.

2. Some claimed that this fern can heal some skin infections. 

3. Best cook with pig skin, chili and shrimp paste. Back then, it was normally boiled with a bit of salt to dilute the bitter taste.
