Based on wild/natural foods grown and gathered by Native Americans of the Southwest, American Indian Cooking presents a wealth of information on plants, uses and updated recipes for their consumption. Each plant is listed, described and illustrated painstakingly, followed by the plant's uses and recipes for serving. A great deal of Native American agrarian history is effortlessly presented in this attractive book. Some eye catching recipes are given for: Saguaro Cactus Jelly, Sweet Pumpkin Muffins, Walnut Corn Bread, Roasted Pumpkin Seeds, Blue Corn Mush with Onion Gravy, and Zuni Succotash. Take a walk in the desert and see what wonderful edible plants nature has provided.
It's mind-blowing to realize how many plants i considered weeds or merely ornamental are edible.If i ever get stuck in the wilderness, i'll now know many more foods to stay alive on.Unfortunately, many of them take extensive prep to make them palatable.But i'm planning to share a meal of them with adventurous neighbors.
Carolyn Neithammer is great! You can't go wrong with her cookbooks. Her recipes are absolutely traditional, and the book also gives good wild-food foraging and processing information, as well as background information about the foods.
