Ingredients

  • Salt, to taste
  • Corn flour [masa harina works really well if you canít get the real stuff from the bush], about 2 lbs
  • [2] No. 303 cans kidney beans
  • Big Kettle of boiling water

Directions

Mix the flour and about 1 Tablespoon salt with the beans and some water till you form a stiff dough, kneading it with your hands.
Form into flattened cakes about 6 inches in diameter, and about 2 inches thick.
Boil in the water in a covered kettle till they rise [about 1 hour]
Lift out of the kettle, slice and serve with butter.

Note: When you serve with squash, you are sharing the gifts of the 3 Sisters. The corn bread is good the next day as well. Fry in a pan and serve hot. My grandparents used to eat it with maple syrup, and my great-uncle said the broth used to cook the bread was good for you as well. That idea didnít catch on with me, but the maple syrup wasnít bad. I still prefer savory to sweet when it comes to eating corn bread!
