Title: Someviki Categories: Native, Pixel 5 rounded tb culinary ash (chamisa preferred) 1 c finely ground blue cornmeal 3/4 c granulated sugar 5 1/2 c boiling water 30 corn husks that have been soaked in very hot water for 10-15 minutes
Mix ashes with 1 1/2 cups boiling water and set aside. Measure cornmeal and sugar into a bowl. Add 4 cups of boiling water to dry ingredients, stirring constantly. Pour a cup or more of ash water through a strainer into dough, until dough is distinctly blue in color. Put 2 heaping tablespoons of dough on each corn husk and fold husks around dough, sides first and then ends. Secure with string made from corn husks. Drop husk-wrapped dough into a large pot of boiling water. Cover and simmer for 20-25 minutes, and drain. If culinary ash is not available, add some blue food coloring instead of ash to 1 1/2 cups of boiling water, then follow directions as for ash water.
