Slippery Elm Bark
During the cold winter at Vally Forge, George Washington’s troops are reported to have lived through a 12 day period of time with not much more than slippery elm porridge, the inner bark of the slippery elm tree (Ulmus fulva or rubra). The inner bark of the Slippery Elm was recommended by the North American Natives. Modern nutritionists have discovered that, when prepared as a porridge, the bark does have a food value equal to that of oatmeal. Natives and early adventures would strip off pieces of this cambium bark and chew it. A long-lasting chaw that both satisfies thirst and supplies a certain amount of minerals and nutrients. in a low calorie survival situation the Slippery Elm Bark helps calm the stomach, the deep tree roots collect beneficial minerals from the soil up into the trees, use the inner bark of the smaller branches.
