The cuisine of Papua New Guinea is based on indigenous ingredients easily gathered from the jungle or cultivated in home gardens. The starchy innards of the sago palm yield a flour suitable for breads and puddings. Pork is a popular meat and is often cooked in a traditional firepit called a mumu. A type of sweet potato called a kaukau is a staple vegetable as are a wide variety of greens and tropical fruits.
