recorded by desoto's chronicles by elvas ,,also adair,dupratz,romams,,, and others... is a simply made trail food ya'll might enjoy .. the greatest mention is of persimmons, but plums,maypops{passionfruit},peaches,sweetpotatoes,and such fruits&root foods as will bear it .. its mentioned that persimmon cakes will keep from one year to another ..and there is nodiarrhea or dysentery it does not arrest ..and peache cakes were benificial in curing fevers and tried and approved by english practitioners of medicine ...when well ripened seperate the flesh from skin&seed and form pulp into loaves , the thickness of your small finger width and length varies using ovens or gridles of slate or steatite {soapstone} build suficeint fire to heat oven and once burned down to coals , sweep them to ring oven or gridle , place cakes in center to bake well ...sorta like open pit firing of pottery .. wild berries , sunflowerseeds, and ground venison jerky amongst other items is mentioned to be added.. this can also be sun dried but with the humidity were i'm at makes it impractical ... can be eaten as is or added to water to make a poridge .. and for those new to living history or the easier aspect of being authentic you can use your dehydrayter.... these loaves or cakes are mentioned amongst most all southeastern tribes ... they taste great ,,enjoy.. hope this serves you well .. till forest or glen watch yur top knot ..
