Hi Sarawkaiana,I think it is a wild species of ginger (family-zingiberaceae) judging from the flowers. But I cant see the leaves clearly.There are lots of wild ginger species in Swak. Have u heard of jerangau?Greenspot
wow, yr hubby is a lucky guy...with yr knowledge i bet often u cook exotic stuff. mrs bb was tickled pink by yr comment on my blog about my post... about my writing skills. hehe
Dear GreenpotWhat is jerangau? It must be a rare species or the name is something very new to me.Thanks for the comments. What about daun long? What is its scientific name?
BengbengDon't be shy. You have a nice heart and a nice "voice: in your blog. When writing we are all conscious of our message and voice and audience.My hubby claims that he is the better cook!!I am an experimental cook and like to try different ingredients. Simple ingredients and simple flavourings form the basis of my cooking.All the best to your writing and cooking. Regards to Mrs. BB and BH.
yeah,Bengbeng about Sarawakiana's knowledge about plants really "boh hao siaw".
Ah Ngao ..you are full of compliments.Thanks...All these acquired when I was a teacher and travelling to Ulu places...and kept a notebook. Now I have digital camera and blog...I just show my hao siaw...technology and interest in nature. Also I have a good memory for plants etc....Use to draw and label all small parts...hahahahah
Sarawakiana,Jerangau is a wild ginger species found in places like Bario. It belongs to the genus Bosenbergia. Jerangau is medicinal and used by the Kelabits. There are two or three kind such as jerangau merah, etc. Heard that after you take the tuber/rhizome of Jerangau, chillies will not tast hot any mre for a period of time.Daun Long could belong to the genus Zingiber (same genus as the ginger we use in cooking).Greenspot
GreenspotThanks for taking time to answer my questions. Must go to see some jerangau in Bario or in some K homes. Very interesting indeed.Thanks for the info on daun Long...I will try to feature it soon on my blog.
