Palm Wine

Severed flower stalk of Arenga pinnata (Wurmb) Merrpositioned to drip into a clay collecting pot.  The sugar-rich exudate is fermented to make palm wine or "toddy". Despite reports that the raw juice is "caustic", the fresh, unfermented sap is actually a sweet, and quite refreshing drink. [NOTE: Photo from a Dayak village in the Sanggau district of West Kalimantan].
