Green Corn Bread-A Taste of Hearth Cooking

Three folded, and filled packets of green corn bread were prepared from one ear of Puhwem (Lenape white flour corn) in the green or milk stage.  The bread requires two leaves from the corn plant filled with the flavorful, milky green corn scraped from the cob.  The bread will bake in the embers of the main fire.

Milky Kernels-A Taste of Hearth Cooking

When Puhwem (Lenape white flour corn) is green corn the kernels are filled with milky white juices that are concentrated corn flavor.  I am using my jaspar knife to remove the kernels from the cob to prepare green corn bread.  Note all the splatters of "milk" in my bowl and on my finger.

Green Corn-A Taste of Hearth Cooking

After the silks of the Puhwem (Lenape white flour corn) in the green or milk stage were harvested for drying, the green husks were carefully put back in place and tied with a piece of a corn leaf.  In the foreground of the picture, two ears are soaking, one is tied and in the trade kettle boiling and one is tied and roasting supported by a roasting stick.

Harvesting Silks-A Taste of Hearth Cooking

After husking the Puhwem (Lenape white flour corn) in the green stage, the silks are harvested.  The silks are full of nutrients.  There is one silk for pollinating each kernel from the tassels of the corn stalks.  If a kernel is not developed on an ear, it did not get pollinated.

Husking Puhwem-A Taste of Hearth Cooking

Before roasting or boiling Puhwem (Lenape white flour corn) in the green stage, the ear must be husked.  Note that unlike modern sweet corn, the green husks do not cover the entire ear and the husks completely overlap.

Puhwem-A Taste of Hearth Cooking

I give thanks to Nora Thompson Dean (Touching Leaves Woman) and her family for their stewardship of Puhwem (Lenape white flour corn) in Oklahoma.  Nora is considered to have saved Puhwem from extinction and it is because of her that I have four ears of Puhwem green corn in my clay pot. With six ears total, I interpreted the preparation of roasting ears, boiling ears and green corn bread.
