Recipes : H(095) Dioscorea dumetorum famine food plant in Pemba Island. Tubers which are fairly palatable are collected and eaten particularly in times of food shortage. The tuber peeled and then cut it into small pieces and washed, them to soak in plenty of water, in a stream or pond, or even better the sea. After removing the slices of tuber from the water, boil some more water and wash it again. Then you can do whatever you want with it, drying it to make flour for porridge or meal, or cooking it with grated coconut and eating it like that. This elaborate preparation is necessary: elsewhere the tuber is reported to have caused vomiting and death when eaten raw
