Wampanoag Indian Pouches and Journey Cakes

This was another fun learning day when Jacob got to do the same thing Alissa was doing.

After learning about the Wampanoag Indians, we made pouches from brown grocery sacks.

Then we made Journey Cakes to fill the pouches.

 The Wampanoag would put these in their pouches when making long journeys to keep themselves nourished. 

These were so easy to make and SO delicious!  I thought we would get sick we ate so many so fast!  lol!

1 cup of fresh, fried corn, see instructions below
1 large egg
1-1/2 cups milk
3/4 to 1 cup corn meal
1 teaspoon salt
vegetable spray

To fry the corn, cut kernels from one ear of corn.  Heat one tablespoon oil in skillet.  Stir corn until it starts turning brown around the edges of kernels.

Preheat griddle to 375 degrees.  Mix together milk and egg.  Add dry ingredients.  Batter will be thin.  Spray griddle with shortening.  Pour batter onto griddle as you would pancakes.  When bubbles form and edges are dry, turn cakes over and cook on other side.  Flip onto a plate and serve alone or with soup.

I got brave enough to let Alissa measure
out the cornmeal on her own.  :)  She did a
great job!

I hope you get to try them!

Until we meet again, may you be blessed!
