  3. Hmm.. Do you also know... how to make the spicy version of it? I live far away from home and would love to know how to make it myself over here. I missed that spicy cracker. Over here we can buy the emping (not fried), so I figure I could have coated it with the spice sauce.

  6. Well illustrated. The tree grows in PNG and is planted in North Queensland but only the leaves are eaten. I would like to change that.
