Ingredients

  • Six Cups Spring Water Or The Best You Have
  • 2 Cups Dried Sweet Corn
  • 1 Tablespoon Salt

Directions

Boil water add dried sweet corn.
Return to a boil and add salt.
Continue to boil corn and add water as needed to keep water line about one quarter inch above corn.
Cook until tender.
Options to add diced bacon to taste is very good!!

Note: in the early 1800's on our Umatilla Indian reservation we adopted cornhusk into out traditional weaving, using cornhusks, as a result we had a abundance of corn, we removed it from its cob and have continued to dry it from those early days, and it has become a very important and revered food. Especially in its dried form to share with family and friends....
