Ingredients

  • Tallo or Lard (or substitute water)
  • Dried Chokecherry or Juneberry (Saskatoons)
  • Ground Dried Corn Kernals

Directions

Grind dried flour corn kernals in a hand grinder.

Grind dried Chokecherry or Juneberry (Saskatoons).

Mix the corn and berries together at a ratio of 4 corn to 1 berry.

Put tallo in a frying pan and lightly brown the mixture.

Note: The old timers at this point would put more tallo/lard in the pan.

Dig into the corn mixture with the fingers and an elongated (four fingers wide) mass is formed. Thats why they call it in Dakota Wahuwapa (corn cob). Note: In English they are called Corn Balls probably because some tribes formed them into egg or ball shapes.

Dry them in the sun for later storage.
