    turpentine is in the bark, too. you have to break it up, soak it in several different containers of water, and add something else for flavor, cause it tastes bland at best. Doesn't take all that many reptiles, birds, eggs, fish, amphibians and insects (all best roasted until very well done, then broken up into powder) to add some flavor and protein. Fats are what is hard to get in the wild. nuts, seeds, and critters are about the only source, and it wont keep for long. if you don't cache anything else, have some sealed metal tins of Crisco.

    Myakka, don't boil them. Bring your water to a boil, stop the boil and then place your needles in the water.
    If you boil those needles you'll get somethin akin to turpentine http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IrSqva1Y9Bg

    My Peterson Field Guide says all are edible. (And that some are better than others.)

    But it does list the cambium as a source to make flour, not just to eat, so it may be nasty.

    Also, Pink,
    the light younger needles are better tasting in tea than the dark green mature ones. I have only had it a couple times but it didn't seem bad to me.

    I've made that in Venture crew, it's pretty gross.... Also, the inner bark, if you take the white and orangeish bark right before you hit the inner bark you can suck on that for water, it takes like oranges, but you cannot swallow it, well you aren't supposed to.

    white pines are best and we dont have them here. I have still gotten ploem from these pines but not nearly as much, really not worth it IMO.

    It tasted "piney" to me. I cooked it on a hot rock until it was golden brown.
