Along the same lines as Tim's post below, the government of North Korea is encouraging their hapless citizens to eat pine needles.

Pyongyang, June 15 (KCNA) -- Pine needle has been used as material of health foodstuffs from ancient times in Korea. According to "Hyangyakjipsongbang" (a medical encyclopedia) published in the 15th century in Korea, pine needle prevents aging, invigorates spirits and turns grey hair to black.

The Korean people have used pine needles in steaming rice-cake and curing various diseases.
