This book is great, and a historical reference with lots of information about different tribes from Canada, America, Central America and South America.
The only hard thing about this book is the tribes are all so different. Since different regions offer different ingredients it would have made more sense to me to organize this book by region, not the typical, meat, vegetables, soups etc. Having said that it’s pretty cool to see the things that come natural to me (from history), and the things that don’t. The instructions also read like the way someones mom tries to explain a recipe.
I’m happy with any book that focuses on native recipes, from any region.
Also can we talk about the glare from the guy on the cover (!?).
Sambucus racemosa is in the family Adoxaceae. Commonly known as red elderberry, it is native to much of North America where it grows in riparian areas close to rivers and streams. The fruits of this species are toxic if eaten raw, and can cause nausea and vomiting. However, many Native American recipes use the berries after they have been cooked for some time.
