Native American Cooking:
Cherokee Sweet Potato Bread

The Cherokees of North America have a wonderful museum in North Carolina, just outside the Smoky Mountain National Park. If you ever have the opportunity, you should take the time to visit it. There authentic homes and clothing on display and a tour is given by a Cherokee tribesman. This is a living history museum, so be prepared to be enlightened and impressed. This is a recipe that I found out about while visiting the museum.

Cherokee Indian Sweet Potato Bread

1 qt. corn meal
3 c. diced sweet potatoes
1 t. soda
12 corn husks

Mix cornmeal, soda, and potatoes with enough boiling water to make a stiff dough. Knead well to make firm bread. Wash corn husks and scald them in hot water. Put dough on large end of blade and be sure all sides are covered with blade and tie end of blade in a loop. Drop bread in boiling water. Boil 45 minutes.
