The Seven tribes, mainly the Iroquois, made corn breads by boiling them in water.

They made their flour by pounding the dried corn kernels into a fine powder.

Mixing this “flour” with water they kneaded it to form loaves. By adding berries or nuts it became very satisfying. I have also seen mention of their adding cooked beans to this dough.

Once formed and kneaded so that the dough was no longer sticking to the fingers. The small loavesĀ  then dropped into boiling water and cooked until they floated.

The bread was then served either hot or cold.
