The Cabbage Palm, or Sabal Palm is the Florida State tree. Old timers would cut a young tree, trim it down to the heart and cook it in hunting camps over an open fire. It meant the death of a tree. I like to make a 'Florida' meal for company, and I make this dip using canned hearts of palm. It incorporates other ingredients, and makes it much tastier than using just hearts of palm. It's just a 'touch' on a Florida native dish just to honor it....AND save a tree.
