Stripping Spruce roots

Today I’ve been experimenting with different methods of removing the outer sheath of Spruce roots. By far the most affective and simplest method was to find a reasonably strong branch and placing the Spruce root over the base of the branch, pull the root from side to side while applying downward pressure. It is incredibly quick and easy.

  3. I collected and stripped them without the use of a knife. It will be interesting to see how you get on.
