I was in Chuuk last week with some of the Japanese guys from the Area office in Tokyo. We were invited to a Branch family home evening. The foods main attraction was a 250 lb. sea turtle that was cooked in a "UM" (underground with hot rocks). This was on big turtle! Since the shell is its bone structure, there weren't any bones inside. it was all meat. Boy did we eat turtle! I must have eaten a pound of it. The taste was not like "chicken". It was more like really nice lean beef. I also visited the island of Kosrae where my mechanic brings me Mangrove crab to eat. He brought me three crabs this time that had pincers the size of my hand. It was like a "crabby paddy" in each one. That is really good stuff.
