This comes from the Journals of Alexander Henry the Younger, and was written during a visit to the Mandans on the upper Missouri River in the year 1806. "July 28th. We settled accounts with our host, and paid some young men to ferry us over the river and attend our horses. We also paid some women for preparing provision for our homeward journey; this was principally some parched corn pounded into flour, mixed with a small portion of fat, and made up into balls about the size of an egg. These may be eaten as they are, or boiled for a short time; the latter method we found most wholesome." I've experimented with this recipe, using moose fat and beef fat. Not much difference between the two. The recipe is, well....edible.
