    Dear members,
    Is it possible to use pine foliage like thyme or cumin?

    I'm not sure I quite follow you. If you mean as a flavoring to get an evergreen type flavor, than you would use Rosemary.

    there is an old southern recipe for potatoes cooked in
    a cast iron pot with boiling pine resin, but, it seems a
    little dangerous. I have tried the potatoes. You crack
    them open when the resin layer hardens and spoon out
    the inside. definite pine flavor, but, who knows if it is
    safe.
