A tradition way to bake Potatoes in Taiwan

Did you know, how to bake potatoes by using Dirt?

Making dirt clods and make a hollow pyramid by using dirt.

Arrange in a stack by using dirt.

Done, a hollow pyramid made by dirt.

Heat up the dirt by burning some firewood

Heat the dirt up for 40-60 minutes. (Damn long)

Smash down the pyramid and wrapped the potatoes up by the hot dirt for 1hour (huh, another 1hour T_T )

We played some games while we waiting for our potatoes to be done.

Playing with shadow~

And enjoying some junk food :P~

It’s time to dig all the potatoes out carefully from the hot dirt.

What a nice and tasty potato!! It smells good.
