31 Days of the Joys of Autumn - Native American Cuisine

Last week my cousin joined us for supper and, after promising him for almost a year to do it, I finally got around to fixing the long-awaited Native American supper that he's looked forward to for so long. It was worth the wait. He loved it! 

I've shared these recipes before, but they are definitely worth repeating as they are, indeed, one of the many joys of autumn! And, please, note that these pictures aren't that great, but this food is absolutely delicious!!!
Ojibwa Baked Pumpkin and Indian Fry Bread


1 small pumpkin
1/4 cup apple cider
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup melted butter
Place whole pumpkin in oven and bake at 350 degrees for 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Cut hole in top and scoop out the pulp and seeds. Set seeds aside for later eating. Mix together remaining ingredients and pour into pumpkin; bake for 35 minutes. Cut into wedges and serve.

Corn Chowder


1 medium onion, chopped
1 can creamed corn
1 can whole kernel corn, drained
1 cup diced potatoes, cooked until tender
2 1/2 cups milk
1/2 tsp. salt
pepper to taste

In a large saucepan brown onions, cooking over low heat. Add remaining ingredients and bring to a boil, then turn down the heat and simmer for a few minutes.


3 cups flour
palm of baking powder
palm of salt
enough milk to make dough

Mix. Tear off small amounts of dough and flatten. Deep fry in hot oil until both sides are golden brown. Serve plain or with butter as part of the meal or rolled in powdered sugar as a dessert. 

Until next time...
