Category: Soups, Vegetables, Side Dishes, Pork

 Ingredients List

  • 4 qt Dried Indian corn kernels
  • 3 lb Salt pork
  • 1 lb Dry red kidney beans
  • 1 qt Hardwood ashes


Put enough water in an old kettle to cover the corn, Bring to a boil; add
corn and ashes. Cook about 20 minutes, stirring frequently. This loosens
the hulls or shells on the corn. When the hulls slip off the kernels by
working between the fingers, drain the water and rinse corn in cold water,
working corn with the fingers to help remove hulls. Drain and parboil;
drain, rinse and parboil again. Repeat several times until the parboiled
water looks clean and clear, (A handmade basket is traditionally used for
this purpose.)

When corn is good and clean, place it in a large kettle or canner with
clean water. Parboil washed beans separately until water is colored; add
both water and beans to the corn mixture. Cut salt pork into small pieces;
add to the corn and beans. Be sure to use plenty of water because the corn
will swell as it cooks. Cook 3 or 4 hours, or until corn is tender,
stirring occasionally and adding water as needed. Makes 16 quarts of soup.
