Haiti's poor eating scones out of the mud (13 photos)

Residents of one of the poorest countries in the world because of hunger forced to return to the ancient method of food. The population of Haiti is literally moved to grass. There people eat cakes of mud.

The recipe is simple: a bucket of mash of earth and sand poured a few liters of water. In the resulting mass add a little salt and at best vegetables. The heat treatment of the dish goes in the sun.

Cakes of mud become an integral part of the diet of local poor. So they try to somehow cope with bouts of famine and remedy the lack of calcium in the body.
