Example text

Fortunately, we have always been able to buy potatoes and flour, so we were never dependent on just the turnips. Pretty Shield always seemed to collect just enough, so she would usually have a few left when spring came along. To find wild turnips, look on rocky slopes that aren’t overly grazed. I always look for a slope that comes gently down to the level. There have to be a few rocks where they like to grow. When I was young I used to wish that you’d find turnips in a smooth, gardenlike place with soft soil.

Pretty Shield never ate the seeds. In fact, they were not used for any cooking at all as I remember. We used the dried squash in stews. The Crows liked to stew those long circular pieces still whole, but you can cut them into strips three or four inches long. We would always cook it with the skin on. pl ant fo ods 27 n Squash and Onion My favorite traditional way to cook squash is with onions. Whole onions with the skin left on baked with pieces of squash give it a nice color; they give it kind of a red look.

My grandmother crushed the chokecherries between rocks. She used her pestle and her rock platform, and she would absolutely mash those seeds and everything all together. She and her friends would form the cherry mash into little patties after they had crushed the fruit and would place them on a tarp. They placed the patties about half a foot apart to dry. Sometimes they’d squeeze the chokecherry mash through their hands so that it formed a shape like a railroad spike. They would dry the spikes just as they would the patties.
