Ingredients

  • Wild Greens
  • Handful of Parched Corn
  • Handful of Venison Jerky
  • Water
  • Coarse Ground Black Pepper
  • Flour
  • Oats (optional)

Directions

Harvest any/all edible greens from the days trail. (dandelion, wild onion, etc.)
Break apart a large handful of venison jerky into your pot.
Add a handful of parched corn.
Add the wild greens you harvested.
Add twice as much water as is needed to cover the ingredients.
Salt and pepper to taste.
Simmer 1/2 hour.
Mix handful of flour, pinch of salt and enough water to make a dough. (I like to add a small handful of oats to the flour.)
"Float" spoonfuls of dough in soup, continue simmer until dumplings are done.

Note: the old-timer who showed me this recipe was from northern Canada, I canít remember which tribe he was affiliated with. The soup is outstanding after a long days trek.
